Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular side effects have included palpitation (up to 4.5%). Arrhythmia (including ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation), bradycardia, chest pain, hypotension, peripheral ischemia, postural hypotension, tachycardia, and vasculitis have been reported in less than 1% but greater than 0.1% of patients. Cardiac failure, extrasystoles, and pulse irregularity have been reported in less than 0.1% of patients. Angina and myocardial infarction have occasionally been reported; however, these reactions could not be distinguished from coexisting disease states or medications. Worsening angina and acute myocardial infarction can develop after starting or increasing the dose of amlodipine, especially in patients with severe obstructive coronary artery disease.
