My systolic was jumping over 200 while on daily doses of Lisinopril HTC 20/25, Linsinopril 20mg and Atenolol 25 mg. My Dr. added Amlodipine 10 mg. I hated the way it made me feel from the beginning, but at about the 8-week mark I told my Dr. that it was exacerbating almost every Fibromyalgia symptom I had.

My doctor switched me from Amlodipine to Amlodipine-Benazepril. Was okay for 2 weeks then since feel tired all the time, dizzy, ear ringing, pressure in my head, feet ankles swelling, constantly urinating all night, neck and back bones sore, went to a chiropractor thinking I threw them both out. Has to be this drug. Going back to just Amlodipine as I was doing okay with it.

Comment:
The medication I had been taking was removed from my RX formulary and this was substituted 5mg. After monitoring my BP for two weeks it was marginally better, never below 135/70 and most of the time over 145/80. I am fatigued from the minute I wake up til bed time. I don't know if it'd the amlodipine or not but I would like my blood pressure better controlled.
