I do not take pharmaceuticals, preferring to take natural supplements instead. Last week I was under considerable stress and my blood pressure went up to 212/123. I was frightened enough to go to the doctor who prescribed Amlodipine at the 5mg. dose. Over the next few hours my blood pressure did go down drastically, but during that time I experienced dizziness, blurred vision, and worse, I had chest pains and couldn't catch my breath. My face and neck felt hot, my heart rate went up to 110 and I really thought I was dying. I called my doctor the next morning and she agreed I shouldn't take it. I have decided against medicines and will take my herbal remedies, along with potassium and lots of capsicum instead. My blood pressure is way down, I am Blessed to be alive and feeling better. Most of my friends believe that we should take doctor medicine and they think I am very strange and a little crazy, but to each his own. One even said you would probably adjust to it if you would keep taking it. My mother said when, as a teenager I smoked a cigarette and goit sick, that "God was trying to tell me something." I think God was trying to tell me something about Amlodipine.
