I've been taking AMLODIPINE for 3months, its never kept my BP below 155/95 and yhe side effects are not good (consultant doing tests and ask me to stay on it while doing tests as it wont effect results) in the last three says i have had mild headache, flushed face, slightly dizzy, not feeling well. ive been checking bp amd its risen highest 186/109 lowest 155/107.
MY QUESTION IS CAN AMLODIPINE SUDDENLY STOP BEING EFFECTIVE?
NOW 36 years. i've had high blood pressure since my teens, had my only child at 20years 28wks Emergency C-section after untreated pre-eclampsia been on enalapril since. suffered migraines on and off, had 3 episodes of migraine with aura. 2years ago had an episode where my hand and fingers went purple, hospitalised, blood thinners, tests didn't show anything. have had symptoms of mild raynolds since then. been taking nifedipine since, Bp better but up and down, i felt causing migraines to be more often? Went to Gp with awful migraine and Bp was 244/140 i was sent to hospital and being seen / test done by endrocryologist. came out of hospital on 5mg Amlodipine, now increased to 10mg and 4mg DOXAZOSIN. the side effects have been so awful, consultant said i must stay on them until test done. He will review tests end of MARCH
