Amlodipine for High Blood Pressure | What are the Side Effects?



Have you recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure? Has your doctor recommended taking Amlodipine as part of your treatment? Learn about the most common side effects as well as the more rare ones that you should watch out for. Starting a new medication can be scary so be informed.

Medication is not the only way that you should treat your high blood pressure. Many times through lifestyle changes like diet and exercise as well as managing your stress you can make a big impact on controlling it. For some simple steps you can start with in your diet watch my video on how to approach weight loss:

Monitoring your blood pressure at home is a critical element to keeping your blood pressure under control. When it’s high you typically don’t have symptoms and oftentimes when you come see me you get nervous and your blood pressure goes up. It’s very helpful if you are taking it on a regular basis at home so we can tell if we need to make some adjustments. Here are a few options in blood pressure monitors that can help you with this:

  • My blood pressure never came down after prescribed AmLodipine. I also have side affects from AmLodipine; headache, and I developed allergy. My doctor changed it to Aprovel and it seems works better for me. My blood pressure has come down to healthy level after taking Aprovel for 4 days now.

  • Thank you for setting a proper expectation Doc!

  • Steroids metabolic in all kinds of meds causing death and Suicide do to Agony of adrenal shut down Immune hormones DNA out of wack.FDA Not Approved in most.

  • I didn't get it for $4 more like 60 something.

  • I’m going to tell you about five common ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen that can cure high blood pressure. 1) Pomegranate juice – This elixir has enough medicinal value to earn the name ‘wonder fruit.’ Scottish researchers from Queen Margaret University have identified how amazing it works for lowering blood pressure. 2) Celery – A recent study based in China, published by the National Institute of Health (NIH), hails celery as a great natural option for reducing blood pressure. More than 87% of the participants showed a reduction in blood pressure after consuming celery regularly. 3) Melatonin – It’s been used for years as a natural sleeping medicine with no side effects. But surprisingly, an Italian research study published in the American Journal of Hypertension shows it also brings blood pressure down while you sleep. 4) Hawthorn – Hawthorn extract and hawthorn berries have been shown to have very good blood pressure-lowering effects, almost equivalent to prescription drugs. The best thing about hawthorn is that it not only lowers blood pressure, but also strengthens heart muscles. 5) Quercetin – A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has reported that a 200 mg supplement of quercetin increased levels of nitric acid in the blood, thus dilating blood vessels and lowering blood pressure. But we saved the best for last. The most effective, quickest and easiest way to lower blood pressure naturally are 3 easy blood pressure exercises. Click here : https://tinyurl.com/yy2443ya?

  • I’m taking the same thing for high blood pressure and it makes me feel tired, but it worked

  • It makes the back of my head hurt and my neck hurt

  • One thing to add, do not take this med with common antibiotic Erythromycin. I made that mistake and my blood pressure went so high I had to be rushed to the hospital. It just kept getting higher and higher for about 20 min and then it just dropped down to WAY too low.

    As I was recovering at hospital I received a call from my pharmacist saying they noticed I was taking both meds and to be very careful because of known side effects including highly elevated heart beat and blood pressure.

    Just a heads up.

  • Great video. It's a no brainer that nature has the cure to every ailment we suffer. I got a firsthand experience when I was diagnosed of cancer in 2015. I tried everything possible to get rid of it, all to no avail. I almost lost hope when I came across Dr. Aliyu from a testimony I read online. He is a herbal specialist. He prepared a herbal medication which was very effective against the cancerous cells. Today I am cancer free and I have Dr. Aliyu to thank for saving my life. This may not be for you but anyone who wishes to reach out to Dr. Aliyu, he can be reached at perfectherballife(at)gmail.com. I hope you find solution to any health challenge you suffer. All the best!

  • Allow me to attest to the effectiveness of this guide that handles blood pressure level. Another treatment solution I have personally experimented with are definitely not long-lasting in sustaining my blood pressure. There’s no other medication out there that fulfill what it says. I simply demand a brief period of time, my high blood pressure had gone right down to 145/90 and looked after it for quite a while. Using Google to get this tip. This tip is Jason Cυnobroke

  • What about Telmisartan 40 mg ,,,, 1 tab per day

  • I do not have bad habits eating just this medicine is a killer

  • I combine it with boiled celery water. I check on my own monitor my BP is at the normal level every morning it's about 120-130/80-90 and in the evening it goes about 100-120/70-80. I don't 100% trust my montiro but sometimes I feel dizzy and vertigo when I'm standing for a long time.

  • Hello, Dr. I was wondering if you know anything about the medication Eliquis? If so, could you PLEASE make a video telling us something about it? Is it better than Warfarin? Does it have less side effects than Warfarin? My father was on Warfarin before he died and he use to constantly have problems with bleed badly from a little skin tear and lots of bruising. Does Eliquis have these same issues?
    You give such great information and my mom was just put on Eliquis and I’d hate to see her go through the same side effects as my father did with Warfarin. Anything you could tell me would be a big help. Thanks!

  • I have been taking amlodipine / benazepril 10/20 since 2002 and have no problems with it… It is actually the only medication that brought my blood pressure under control…

  • F you start taking Amlodipine, can we stop taking it, esp my b/p s only 110/72, or sometimes lower. So s there problem f we wl not take it everyday?

  • Thanks. You have just convinced me NOT to take amlodipine…

  • This medication was terrible for me. I felt horrible till I quit. It didn't lower my BP. However my mother had no side effects from it. Bottom line is it works for some and not for others.

  • Yes it works for me for more than 2yrs I used 10 ml

  • 6 months taking this medicine, increased my blood sugar to diabetic range. Took 6 months for sugar levels to return to normal after stopping this medicine.

  • I SERVED TWO COMBAT TOURS IN VIETNAM 1967 — 1969 AS AN OCS LIEUTENANT. DURING MY SECOND TOUR, MY LUMBAR SPINE, LEFT EYE/EAR/BALANCE/HEARING WERE BADLY DAMAGED BY A VIET CONG MORTAR BLAST. THAT WAS IN JULY, 1968. I SPENT TWO MONTHS IN TRACTION IN THE 71st EVAC MASH UNIT IN PLEIKU. AND THAT HAS BEEN FOLLOWED BY A LIFETIME OF CHRONIC PAIN, DIZZINESS, NIGHTMARES, NARCOTICS OF EVERY VARIETY FROM MORPHINE THROUGH 240mcg FENTANYL PATCHES, MUSCLE RELAXANTS OF SAME, CHRONIC FATIGUE & HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. ALL THIS WAS CONNECTED TO SKIN RASHES/JUNGLE ROT WHICH HAS YET TO GO COMPLETELY AWAY, HAIR LOSS (THE ONLY MALE IN FAMILY HISTORY) & DYSENTERY PROBLEMS CULMINATING IN MY GUTS EXPLODING IN 2010, CAUSING THE LOSS OF 18 INCHES OF LARGE & SO MANY “MILES” OF SMALL INTESTINES. AFTER THE SURGERY, I HAVE EXPERIENCED “BOWEL BLOCKAGE A GRAND TOTAL OF SIX TIMES, SENDING ME TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM IN SCREAMING GUT PAIN WHHERE I HAD A THBE SHIVED DOWN MY NOSE & A MINIMUM OF THREE DAYS HOSPITAL STAY TO PUMP OUT MY INNARDS!!! THIS ALL BEGAN 52 YRS AGO….A LONG TIME TO BE IN PAIN. MY BLOOD PRESSURE “AVERAGED” 150/100 FOR DECADES. FINDING A VEIN FOR BLOOD TESTS & IVs WAS A WALK IN THE PARK FOR EVERY VAMPIRE TECH AT THE VA. SOME YEARS AGO, MY MD STARTED ME ON LYSINOPRIL. THAT TURNED OUT TO BE POISON FOR ME. THIS LAST GO-ROUND IN MY GUTS WAS IN MAY & THE MD TRIED YOUR Rex ON ME & IT ACTUALLY IS WIRKING. I HAVE EXPERIENCED THE ANKLE SWELLING (TWO YEARS AGO, I WAS HIT WITH NEUROPATHY IN MY FEET…JUST AS A LAFF FROM GOD TO PRETTY MUCH FINISH OFF MY BODY! I EXPERIENCED ANKLE SWELLING FROM THAT & AM NOT SURE IF THE TWO PROBLEMS ARE REALLY CONNECTED. HOWEVER, WITH MY BP APPEARING TO BE SOMEWHAT UNDER CONTROL, MY PRIMARY CARE MD (SINCE 2000) SEEMS RELIEVED THAT I JUST MAY NOT EXPLODE IN HIS OFFICE SOME DAY!!! THE ON,Y PROBLEM NOW IS TECHS ATTEMPTING TO FINE A VEIN FOR AN IV MUST GO ON A “MINING” EXPIDITION, WHICH IS BEGINNING TO BE UNPLEASANT!!!
