Hi I've been taking amlodopine for several weeks now for high BP (190 over 90), two weeks at 5 mg and then it was upped to 10mg though my BP had gone down a bit . Over the last week while taking the 10mg I have found my ankles and feet swelling, burning hot and itching, and blurred vision ( I have floaters anyway ) so I have for the last couple of days cut the 10mg tablet in half and taken half daily. I want to come off them entirely but don't really want to go back to Dr. Can I just stop or should I go back and ask for a smaller dose than 5 mg to wean off gradually? it has been a real help to read that I am not the only one who has side effects from this tablet! Thanks.
