I was put onto these and soon developed a bad cough and cold. I went back to my doctor. he assured me they were good - \"no problems with any other patient\" and he doubled my dose.
Soon afterwards, I noticed a big brown blob on the pavement in front of me - and it went before me.
I only have one good eye. I suspected this medication and took myself off them. I had an eye test with an optician who couldn't see anything wrong.
I found some Atenolol and reckoned that 50mg was ok (I have a blood pressure meter).
I told my doctor that I was finished with Amlodipin - he put me back onto Atenolol and made an appointment with an eye specialist at the local hospital - he couldn't see anything wrong.
My cough and cold cleared up within a week, and my eyesight has slowly recovered, but it took several months.
