Have been on Amlodipine (10mg) as well as Enalapril maleate for high blood pressure. The amlodopine was prescribed 18 months ago and adverse symptoms crept up on me over time. These included: nausea, lower back pain, loose stools frequently and excessive flatulence. But the worst one was a constant feeling of needing a bowel movement soon after having one. This feeling had me visiting toilets frequently to check and living in fear of an accident in public. I have now stopped taking the amlodopine with my dr's agreement - he is arranging for a colonoscopy to check out the change in bowl habits but I am convinced that the amlodopine is responsible. Anybody had a similar experience?
