... They released me with a prescription for this medication for one month. I took it and have not been back to the doctor since running out 10 months ago. My blood pressure has been 151/109 with a pulse of 90. A friend of mine gave me 3 Amlodipine 10 mg. is it safe for me to take this medication
If I were in your shoes I would only take the medication if the Dr prescribed it or informed you about it, medications as you have benefits, side effects, interactions with other meds, food and diseases. There are to many risks involved, I know your friend means well but never take medications that are not given to you by a Dr, those are my thoughts, at the end of the day it is your life and you decide what to do.
Have a good evening.
