Reasons for: my doctor wants to change me to Norvasc. And I was told by numerous of others that it is a powerful formula. Well, I have good blood pressure readings at home 108/66. And I am currently on Losartan, but when I go to my doctors appointment it goes up like 150/78. I personally me think its an error reading I don't want to take Norvasc, 5mg I feel as if It may bottom out please help..
Its not an error reading, you have white coat syndrome, like I do. You should be keeping a diary of your daily bp readings to show him too. What time of day do you get your bp that low? What is it in the evening? I take 10 mg of amlodipine, 400 mg of metoprolol and a water pill to keep my bp down. I'm still walking and not passing out. The dr will order what you need. If your pills aren't keep your bp down under stress, you have to take something else.
Amlodipine isn't any stronger then any other bp med, its what works for us.
