How long does it take the breathlessness to go away after discontinuing Amlodepine for 1 months

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been having horrible breathlessness for the last 2 weeks 24 hours a day following a bronchitis infection that I think was also caused by amlodepine since it weakens your immunity,

Although I have had been taking the coated tablets of amlodepine for many years as and when needed but this was the first time I took amlodepine with absolute compliance 5mg uncoated tablets twice a day for over a month, I started to feel breathless all of a sudden just after a few days of taking amlodepine and I knew it was because of it but I never knew that it would keep on getting worse to a level I would need to take medication to improve my breathing.

I have stopped taking them cold turkey and its been 7 days ago but the breathlessness is still there, can't feel the same like before, How long can it take for the side effects to go away?

    Driving down to the West Country for Christmas so quite full on at  the moment. Hope you are starting to feel better. I’ve been taking Amlodopine and Perindoprol for years and have  never had a side affect except a slight cough from time to time which I was told to expect. I am sure someone must have experienced your symptoms and as you say it would be beneficial for someone with more experience of this to comment. Have a nice Christmas 🎄
