Horrible side effects Amlodophine

Posted , 11 users are following.

I’m on Amlodophine 10mg and feel horrible. I have heart palpatations  chest tightness and occasional dizziness.. just feel unwell. Only been on this dose 2-3 weeks  ( was on 5 but didn’t control pressure ) so wondering if it gets better with time or should I insist doctor change my meds. He disagreed when I told him what I was feeling, saying it’s rare. Might be but I know what I’m feeling. Anyone been thru this?

    Cynthia, I like your comment.  But the oddest thing is my cardio does take amlo and has good results.  He will, therefore, defend it to the death.  He screams at me when I bring up another bad side of that poison.
