    Hello Michael

    I had a similar reaction to your self but let it get to far. I ended up with both califs and ankles very swollen. Then a Eczema type rash started to appear on my left ankle and spread up my left leg, I like you ended up not being able to walk.

    Against all advice I just stop the taking Amlodipine 5mg, I did have a bit of a reaction but I had only been taking Amlodipne for eight weeks so it wasn’t like someone being on them for a longer period.

    My GP replaced the Amlodipine with Losartan 50mg and Flrosemide 40mg (water tablets) to try and get rid of the swelling in my legs.

    My right leg has reduced down to normal size , but my left leg has reduced to about 50% of its normal size.

    Recently I've had Atorvastatin 20mg added to the mix of medication I am taking, which my GP doesn’t believe is causing a tight mussel feeling in both my ankles.

    My cholesterol levels have always been between 3.8 and 4.8 throughout my life time, As its not known what my cholesterol reading is now, so I don’t know why I have been given them.

    Four months ago my blood pressure was 180/100 now is 130/80 but GP is still not happy

    Anyone else had problems with Statins?

      Yes I had terrible leg pains at night, unable to sleep and frequent trips to the bathroom. I was on Lisinoprill and ended up at A&E with a swollen mouth and tongue, the consultant said he had seen many problems with Lisinoprill including allergies and nasty coughs.

    The Ask Now website dates the entry '2 years ago'.  There's mention of the ban on the British Heart Foundation webpage, from a patient, dated July 7 2013.  She said, 'However, I had some very unpleasant reactions to this medication and can understand why it is banned in Holland.'   I might email the BJF direct and ask them.

    Just saw your ur posting as I am a newbie to these forums.

    i should hope by now that you have seeked medical advice and had your medication changed.

    when I was initially prescribed this medication my GP specifically told me to discontinue and see him for a change in medication.

    yes these are side effects..of fluid retention are amongst many.

    some people are ok on this drug.

    hope your good now.
