Hi, I am a 59 year old male, not overweight & physically very fit. After experiencing a couple of dizzy spells at work last year I finally decided to see a GP who immediately prescribed 5mg Amlodipine for sky high BP. Two months later I didn't see much change with my BP but I did notice swelling in my ankles. I stopped taking the medication hoping to reduce my BP by cutting down on coffee & going to yoga classes. This worked for a while but over the space of several months my BP crept back up to unacceptable levels & I went back to the GP. I was prescribed 5mg Rampiril which has had no noticeable side effects. It reduced my BP but not to the target level set by my GP. I am today starting a course of 10mg Rampiril in a bid to reach my target BP of 130/80. It is currently 145/90 after 4 weeks on 5mg Rampiril. I will keep you posted on results & any side effects experienced.
