I am a British heart patient (pacemaker, high calcium level in one artery, high blood pressure, cholesterol etc) and I think people considering Amlodopine should know that it is not necessarily a bad drug. It is widely used by cardiologists in the UK, including my own. At the beginning I was put off by stories of side effects like those below. But I agreed to start taking the drug, and in fact increased my daily intake from 5mg to 10. My blood pressure has fallen significantly, from a systolic up around 155/160 down to 115/120, and the diastolic reading has fallen by pretty much the same degree. Would I prefer not to take the drug? Probably. Has it had any worrying side effects? To be honest, none that I'm aware off. I accept this drug isn't for everyone, but I do think that for blood pressure it's worth a try. By no means all users suffer because of it.
