I have been on 5mg Amlodipine for years now to keep my BP down - it does work too, I have experienced most side effects, the most troublesome of late is the irregular heart beat and "fluttering" pulse. Often at night when lying down and trying to sleep. GP sent me for a 48 hr ambulatory heart monitor, specialist has written back to say monitoring shows a normal heart rhythm, but with extra beats in the upper and lower chambers. Suggested if it bothered me even after reassurance to see my GP with a view to going on low dose of beta blockers. I'm 72 now and wondering if this irregular heart beat is cos I'm getting older. Anyone else experiencing this irregular heart beat on Amlodipine??
