I've taken AMLODIPINE 5mg for two months and I also take HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE 25mg. This is the 3rd time my medication was changed and it seems to work for me. AMLODIPINE I take it late at night when I go to bed and snack on crackers before taking it so it won't bother my stomach.

I was taking 100mg Atenolol but my BP was still elevated. Dr. added Amlodipine. BP is down, the last couple of weeks, I've had swelling in legs/ankles/feet. Dr. told me this would happen but didn't say how long it would last. Does anyone have any idea how long it will last?

This round of medication is the first in my ... Show Full Comment

I haven't taken for one full month yet. It has lowered my B/P; I take 5MG, generic Amlodipine. Woke up with what looks like "heat rash". First on inner wrists, arms, then on to chest, abdomin, back, neck and spots over eye, behind ears. This rash is slightly raised, hot & itchy. Bendryl helped temporarily yet rash came back full force. Oatmeal bath did not help. I am irritated th ... Show Full Comment
