I’ve been on amlodipine since the end of October. Around the middle of November I started having dizzy spells, at first they were quite mild but but from early December they started becoming more severe. Last Thursday I had an episode that lasted about 20 minutes that totally wiped me out and since Thursday I’ve had two more episodes. My other symptoms are tinnitus, swelling from the knees down and pain, similar to trapped nerves in the back of the upper part of my legs, this is felt whilst sitting down and seems to trigger the dizzy spells. The doctors have said that the dizzy spells are Labyrinthitis but this all started a few weeks after starting the amlodipine. I’ve now been told to come off the amlodipine for a while to see if the symptoms lessen or go completely. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms?
