There is no documentation that calcium channel blockers help in LQTS. It can not be excluded that it could have a beneficial effect, but there is no evidence.
I would recommend that you contact you cardiologist again and discuss the matter with him. If it for sure that you have LQTS and have no problems with betablockers, it is normally preferred. If it is a blood pressure problem there is no problem to add a calcium channel blocker to the beta blocker
