I have just started on amlodopine, half of a 5mg tab. When i took the second dose (left over half from last dose), it did not seem to have any effect and after one hour I measured my BP, it went through the roof. So I took a fresh tab, halved it and took half. My BP seemed to be dropping to normal.
Amlodipine - Why does amlodopine lose effectiveness when halved left overnight?
