I felt compelled to register on this site so i could post informatien here. I have been taking Amlodipine for almost 10 years now. I sometimes experience very light dizziness, light pain in the left ankle and occasional itching. Other than that this medication is okay. I LIVE IN THE NETHERLANDS and this drug has never been banned. I do not know how this information came to exist. I take 5 mg of this drug and it reduces my readings.
I will caution people to not under estimate their diagnosis. If Amlodipine does not help then try something else.
There are many drugs out there. I started with Hydrochloorthiazide and that was aweful. I suffered from terrible tinnitus as a result and had to stop it after discovering the culprit. Amlodipine does not cause me this issue. I have been experiencing hair thinning since 5 years ago, I'm not sure if this is due to ageing or it's to blame on this drug. All i know is i'm over 50.
So to everyone in general, please don't give up, find a drug that helps you. Side effects will aways exist on whichever drug you take, but it must feel bearable. Afterall it's better to treat your symptoms than not doing anything and ending up with a full blown heart attack or stroke.
