Hi I have noticed that most of us are talking about Amlodipine , i might be wrong but i think we might be missing some thing ,

 As well as Amlodipine is a ACE inhibitor prescribed as well ,

 One of the Prills  , Lisinopril/fossinopril or some other Ace.

  Just me but i think it some how interferes with IRON Stores.

  And going on dr google there it is , And i don't mean just Aneamia .on top of that  a Statin, then Water Tablet,Low dose Asprin ,Statin causes muscle ache,asprin causes stomache ulcers(if taken long enough)Water tabs Causes electolight inbalance, There is something wrong but which one!?,

 Sorry for spelling mistakes  , Also Memory affected taking these MEDs .lol

    Right you are Anthony, the real problem is that people take anything and everything their doctor prescribes without question. It's almost like a game to see who can take the most of any regiment of drugs.  Until people do some research on what they are swallowing, I'm afraid nothing will change...

      Hi ann, 

      thanks for replying, i probably would have never questioned my doctor if things was ok after stopping Amlodipine  , but then the headaches came ,dizziness,muscle aches, shortness of breath.brain fog (well had that some time lol) ,I asked for Alternative but she was over ruled by Consultant at Hospital , And i can't get to see him at Hospital till January (at this rate hope i make it till January lol)  There should  be a Doctor of Pills we could see, 

       And yes we are all on some kind of experiment (sometimes feel  like a lab rat)  that saying is true THE NEEDS OF THE MANY OUTWEIGH THE NEEDS OF THE FEW, Er don't think so , love the many but i don't want to be in the few not just yet, as SPOCK says Live long and prosperlol, Its life JIM but not as we know it. We should develop a Tricorder    . yes I'm a treky

    I take Amlodinpine and an ACE inhibitor Ramipril for my BP and also several other prescription and over the counter medications for other conditions.  Whenever my GP suggests or starts a new med I check a web site drugs.com which has tells you side effects and interactions with other medications, it helps to do your homework.  I've been taking both BP meds for 5 years with few side effects but good control of the condition.
