Diagnosed with hypertension 3 months ago Unsuccessfully trie

Patient : Diagnosed with hypertension 3 months ago. Unsuccessfully tried on several classes of medications. Started Verapamil 40 mg last night and had jaw stiffness, upper chest discomfort, and slept only 3 hrs overnight. Uncomfortable taking it this morning. My doc recommended taking 40 mg 3x/day as he is aware of my history. Are these the kind of side-effects that will go away wih continued use?
