I just began taking it and I wake up... during the night feeling miserable with my tongue sticking to the roof of my mouth
Dry mouth is a reported side effect of Norvasc.
If it is bothersome talk with your doctor ... you may need to try another medication.
This is from https://www.drugs.com/comments/amlodipine/norvasc.html
"... Norvasc (amlodipine) for High Blood Pressure: I'm 25 years old and I'm taking 10mg of Norvasc and 25mg of hydrochlorothiazide and at the moment I'm not liking either of the medicines. Between stuffy nose, sore throat, increased thirst, dry mouth, severely dry skin, blurred vision, it makes me feel like its worse than having high blood pressure. My side effects are symptoms of an allergic reaction so maybe someone else might have better luck than me."
