Five days after starting on Amlopidine (5mg) my yesterday and today it appeared as if my blood pressure had risen Ranging from 176-106 to 165-95. Consequently, being a little worried I rang 111. After answering a range of questions and waiting whilst the person at the other end of the phone went to consult with a clinician they eventually came to the conclusion that I should go to see my GP.(Normal wait 3-4 weeks). Anyway I managed to get a nurse to measure my blood pressure (the proper way) and to my surprise it came out reasonable at 138-85. I concluded my machine must be in error and almost went to buy a new one. Went home and measured again with same machine came out at 165-something? Did a control test on the wife and this measured within the normal range.
Any good explanations out there?
