I just found this forum and felt like I had to share my experience, since there seems to be quite a lot similar ones.
I started Amlodipine 10mg a bit over a year ago. Shortly after that I started having heart palpitations, and about after two months I suffered from a atrial fibrillation. I was taken to emergency center, and my heart had to be shocked electrically back to it's normal rhythm. I had never suffered from anything like that before.
The palpitations continued and I also started having other side effects as well.
I started having blurry vision, and really bad brain fog. Also intense blushing on my face and ears, like they would get REALLY red and hot from time to time without any good reason.
I used to be athletic and do a lot of sports before all this, but suddenly I couldn't even lift weights or run properly because I would get really strong heart palpitations.
I talked to a few doctors and all of them just wanted to blame the fact that I'm on testosterone replacement therapy, even tho only thing that had changed before the problems started was me starting Amlodipine.
Finally my trt doc told me that he thinks Amlodipine is a s****y medicine and switched it to Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker called Candesartan. It's been only a week and all of those side effects have gone away almost completely.
No more brain fog, no more palpitations (knock on wood) and no more blurry vision.
Anyways.. just wanted to share my experience if someone is struggling with that awful poison they call Amlodipine.
