Hello all, I am new to this forum but felt compelled to write in.
i take 5mg Amlodipine with 16mg Candesartin to control my blood pressure.
My bp is under control but I suffer with the following side effects.
light headed, dizzy, stomach gripes, tiredness, I can also on occasion suffer from mild angina symptoms, aching shoulders, jaw, mild chest pain.
These symtoms do not occur daily, they have not natural cycle I can pin down.
I suffer with ectopic heart beats and the occasional pause, especially at low rev, as the heart is either warming up or cooling, slowing down. I can in the main handle these symptoms now I understand them better, but the Amlodipine side effects do cause me concern and raise my anxiety levels.
I have had an angiogram, stress MRI and I don't suffer with angina, it's the Amlodipine that appears to be causing my issues.
After reading that so many people suffer in different ways, does anyone know of an alternative to Amlodipine I could discuss with my consultant for a possible swap/trial?
