Hi all! Just curious as to how long it took for your side effects of amlodipine to wear off after stopping. It has been 3 weeks since I stopped amlodipine and was switched by my doctor to Olmesartan. My joint and muscle pain were gone after two weeks. However, the pain has been replaced by occasional tingling and numbness mostly in my left elbow, shoulders and right foot. So I am curious if these could still possibly be lingering effects of Amlodipine or are new side effects caused by Olmesartan. Is there such as a thing as Amlodipine withdrawals? I did read a post here about someone having neuropathy due to Amlodipine and that the effects were permanent. I am beginning to fear that that is the case for me. The optimist in me however is thinking that this is just my body repairing itself after damage done by Amlodipine.
Just to add, numbness and tingling were not really one of my side effects while on Amlodipine. It was severe pain in my joints and muscles which are now gone.
Thanks in advance for the input. I do have another appointment with my doctor in a week but just curious about the experiences of others.
