Hi , I'm in kidney failure (chronic) and I take amlodipine 5 mg for high bp. I have been on it for about 2 months and thought I was doing okay. But in the past few days I have been having extreme dizziness and what I thought was a migraine. It is very hot where I live and I thought maybe the heat was affecting my blood pressure but now I'm not sure. As a retired nurse I should know what to do but I'm stumped. Should I stop taking it and hope for the best or continue it and have these horrible symptoms ? My current bp is 160/90 and has gone as high as 200/110 before. Help please, any advice is appreciated.
