I have been feeling sick since having my blood pressure medicine amlodipine renewed.

Edited , 5 users are following.

I have noticed that I have hot and cold episodes, feel really sick and strange sensations in my head. I paid attention today after taking my blood pressure pill. Wondered if I may have been given a wrong prescription or having a bad reaction to this pill. Would like to check today with the pharmacy but it is closed today.

    hi there - Is Amlodipine a new B/P RX for you? What milligram are you on? 5 ml or 10? i was on this drug for 5 years & it literally was toxic to my system, but when i got switched from 5 to 10 all hell broke lose - Go on the Amlodipine Forum on Patient, many people can not tolerate this B/P medication. Good luck -

    you can go online and look for pill identification, there you can find a website where you can put the name of medication in and dosage and you should be able to see a picture of the pill. hope this helps.

    Hi There:

    I hope that by now, you've been able to get ahold of a pharmacist and gotten some answers?

    The hot and cold and other symptoms you've described could be BP med related but, they also could be cold/flu related as well. Have you taken your temperature? Hot and cold tend to indicate a fever (chills) but, could be anything as well. The funny sensation in your head may be med related or it could be virus related???

    Get in touch with a pharmacist or your family doc who may now be using telemedicine to decide what to do or not do. We're in strange times, right?

    Wishing you well and please let us know!
