I was recently put on Amlodipine in the hope of simply popping a pill to lower blood pressure....I was totally on board! The very first day I began having muscle aches in my legs. Each day I had more aches in other parts of my body, including my back, arms and even in my face. On day 6 I had a follow up with my doctor and he told me I was crazy. That in all of his years of prescribing this medication, he had never heard of such side effects. I told him that I would not continue and it was like I had offended him personally. Wow. I am taking a brisk walk daily and taking Grape Seed Extract supplements also. Cut my cigarette habit in half ( I know I should quit altogether...but hey, I am a work in progress!). I believe it's starting to work, but only been a week. I have been researching Grapeseed and it's affect on lowering blood pressure and even if that is not the component that helps me...it sure can't hurt. It's loaded with anti oxidents and something is making me feel better. My BP was 145/89 yesterday which is heading in the right direction. Thanks for listening!
