I've been taking these tablets now for nearly two months now and feel to some extent that they are not really reducing my blood pressure enough that there is much difference. I like some I've noticed have had many side effects eg, legs swelling, itching all over, bleeding of the gums and nose. I was on 5meg and am on 10meg now. When I first went to my GP my BP was around 176/123. It has fallen slightly and is around 150/107. Fortunately the side effects that I have had, I have been able to cope with ok. But what I am bothered about is I feel I have increased in weight, around my face and around my waist. Has anybody else noticed an increase in weight while taking Amlodipine? or is it my diet and not enough excercise. I have a cousin who is diabetic and suffers with high BP and he tried Amlodipine but made him dizzy, so he is on another BP drug
