I started researching the Side effects of amlodipine (from users not just what's on the pamphlet you get from the pharmacy, which I always read) as I've been on it for four weeks and am starting to have some serious side effects. From my understanding that's typically about the time the side effects start to show up. Here is a list of what I'm experiencing:
Sore skin that burns to the touch
Horrible hot flashes
Nervous anxiety (I do actually have anxiety)
Nausea and loss of appetite
Tight band feeling around head
General feeling ill
The frustrating part about this is a lot of those symptoms come along with anxiety ...but I had my anxiety pretty much under control. Now I feel as if I'm starting to be out of control again with the symptoms and wondering if it could be the amlodipine?
Any help you can give would be appreciated. I have stop taking the med for now as I'm waiting to hear back from my doctor. My pharmacist also told me it was safe to just stop taking it, but to check my blood pressure twice a day. Thanks again.
