I am 69 years old and was started on Amlodipine 5 mg a day for slightly high BP. This started me down a long road of declining health. After being on this med for about seven months I developed neuropathy and was referred to a neurologist. I ask him if the neuropathy could be from the Amlodipine. Jo he said and off I went yo a Reumy where Plaquinal was added and a no again it was not the Amlodopine. Then prednisone was added. Two years passed with a slow downward progression of my health. So enough I started weaning off the meds Plaquinal first no change, then the Prednisone no change then the Amlodipine and bam improvement going from not being able to walk to walking, leg and foot pain Lessing, and sleeping much better. The fatigue much better. Be cautious of taking Amlodopine. I feel it is a bad drug for some people.
