My surgery has substituted my Lercanidipine 10mg with 5mg Amlodipine for cost reasons. What differences are there?
2 Mar 2011
Recent studies have shown that both amlodipine and lercanidipine are effective in treating hypertension but Lercanidipine is superior and better tolerated.
I am not sure why amlodipine has been withdrawn in Holland. A pharmacist should be able to answer your question.
