I was fascinated to read some of the comments about amlodipine - although I haven't quite found the answer to my own exoerience.
As a long term BP sufferer I have been on tablets of various kinds for 10 years. Last November my Dr stopped Atenanol and started 5mg Amlodipine. I had a brief spell of rhinitis (sore nose) but it passed and I thought nothing of it. To improve the BP control I was moved onto 10mg Amlodipine a month or so later and since then I have had continuous rhinitis, a six week cold and recuring dry cough.
I stopped the tablets but after 10 days the rhinitis was no better so couldn't prove that the problem was related to Amlodipine. I started 5mg again and although the rhinitis is the same my cough has come back with a vengence. I have stopped the Amlodipine again and Dr advises giving it longer to get out of my system.
