I took this medication for about a month along with hawthorne capsules and since the hawthorne trees are in leaf, eating fresh leaves. My blood pressure came down but i had a range of effects..consciousness dulled, constriction of the throat, aching leg.. went back to see the GP who said take a break for a few days and start on something else.
In the meantime i noticed a problem with my eyes.Pink and green patches when looking at white - cieling, white paper etc also halo effect, and interesting silver flashes in sunshine. I went to the Opticians, ran loads of tests, pronounced the eyes were perfect, said if i had headaches or tingling in fingers he would have thought it might be a brain tumour. I went home and looked at amlodipine 'side effects ' and found 'visual distortion' on the list.
I decided not to take the new meds as my BP has come down (and stayed down) I am still taking hawthorne caps and grape seed extract. My BP was in the normal range yesterday. BUT ..the eye problem persists in my right eye..reading is a problem, i have to concentrate so hard to get beyond a blur. Has anyone else experienced this? any advice?
