I started taking amlodipine last August (2014) and have recently been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. About 2 months after starting this I had pins and needles in my leg and feet, this continued, and also numbness after more months. I never considered it could be a side effect, but after all this time and have now had various tests (EMG and nerve conduction tests) it transpires I have peripheral neuropathy. Having read that this COULD be a side effect of amlodipine (although fairly rare) I wonder if anyone else has suffered this. It seemed to come on not long after starting this medication. Would appreciate any information
