    I have high blood pressure as a result of heavy drinking. The more I drink the higher the readings. I was taking clonodine/catapres and lisinopril. I got a new doctor and he told me to quit the clonodine/catapres

    Made my feet and ankles swell very bad. Couldn�t breath and became extremely tired! Both legs turned red and itchy! I could barely function! I will never take this drug again! It needs to be removed from pharmacy! Even taking fluid pills twice a day would not remove the excess fluid from my body!

    Has helped lower blood pressure and stabilize heart beat . Palpitations were bothersome and scary, this stuff seemed to help . Occasionally get hot flashes / flushing , some cold sweats , not sure if it's related. Switched from hydrochlorothiazide which was making heart beat worse .

    Started to take this drug to lower my blood pressure, did this, happy veins very unhappy heart.. the palpitations from taking it gave me chest pain and my pulse rate climbed really high, my arrythmia started feeling like an electric shock, I am also taking Flecinaide and I believe this amlodipine prevented Flecinaide from doing it job.
