I want to review, understand and get advice on all the medications I take.
I am concerned about Amlodipine, which I take daily after breakfast (5 mg).
I see Amlodipine is called a calcium antagonist. Does it relax cells and widen arteries to allow blood to flow easier and hence reduce blood pressure?
My doctor regularly renews my prescriptions and I do not seem to have obvious side-effects, except possibly mild incontinence.
I am male, aged 74 and today my health stats are:
Height 179 cm. Weight 85 kg. Waist 99 cm. Hips 100 cm. BMI 25.6. Blood Pressure 119/84. Pulse 87.
Please let me know if I should just continue with Amlodipine, or suggest changes to my GP.
