Hi, I was prescribed Amipril several months ago and the dosage went up to 10mgs about 9 weeks ago. two weeks ago I decided to stop taking the tablets because my hearing had deteriorated so badly and tinnitus was screeching in my right ear permanently. I kept a record of my BP readings in the meantime, and they were only slightly worse that when on the medication. However, I was also tense, quick to blow, felt depressed though some of that could be work situation. I am on sick leave at present and feel so much better although precious little improvement in hearing has taken place.
I now have a prescription for Amlodipine 5mgs and after reading messages on here, I am very reluctant to collect the pills. apart from it all costing me a lot of money, I dont think I could cope with the side effects that have been identified. What advice can anyone give me? I am certainly going to discuss with GP as I told her I would research before taking pills.
