I'm on amlodipine 5mg. (Also olmesartan medoxomil 20mg) I've noticed recently, with the hot weather, that my bp drops to 80/50 (or lower) after about 40 min of tennis. At that level, I feed completely fatigued -- no energy at all. I know that amlodipine is a vasodilator -- a blood vessel enlarger -- and I'm thinking the combination of that with exercise (especially in hot weather) is what's causing my too-low bp numbers. Anyone see anything similar? I'm going to start experimenting with skipping doses. (Taking the meds, without exercising, gives me an average bp of around 124/76.)
