Plendil (felodipine) for Raynaud's Syndrome: I had been using Norvasc for 15 years with very limited success. Seven months ago my new GP prescribed Plendil 5mg. The effect was immediate and suppressed the Raynauds symptoms HOWEVER I became very hot and flushed in the face. I was given 2.5 mg for two weeks and then went back to 5mg with no further problems.

For High Blood Pressure: While this medicine was effective in lowering my blood pressure it had numerous negative side effects. It made me very sleepy, sensitive to heat, caused my ankles and legs to swell up so I needed a diuretic, it caused acid reflux with or without food, flushing, and made my depression much worse. I have since weaned off.

For Raynaud's Syndrome: My Raynaud's Syndrome is about 90% better. A cold steering wheel in the winter or early spring is almost the only time I have white fingers anymore. I can shop in the dairy and meat departments now, and don't get cold at work anymore. Taking felodipine has been a blessing for me.

Plendil (felodipine) for High Blood Pressure: Plendil was effective in controlling my blood pressure. The only reason I am not taking it is because I can not purchase this medicine anymore due to the company discontinuing the product. I have had problems finding a substitute for this medicine. If anything is available on the market, I need help.
