I take amlodipine 10 mg tab camb,1 tablet a day.I have severe swelling in my feet ankles & going up my calves,the dr. said that the amlodipine could be causing this & i should stop taking it & monitor my blood pressure.Does this sound right?
Yes, swelling in the feet and lower legs (edema) is a commonly observed side effect of amlodipine.
Your doctor is on the right track.
I was put on this med and have been miserable for weeks with swelling. Just read that it causes swelling. I already had a problem with swelling. I can't take a diuretic every day because I'm a court reporter, so I guess I'm not taking this drug. I still had swelling on the days that I did take Lasix with it.
I have been on 5mg Amlodipine since January 2018, and have been steadily having swelling in my right ankle and both my hands. My fingers especially! My fingers hurt now. I told my doctor about this and he put me on low dose water pills and that's not helping. This morning I finally had to take my wedding ring off. I do not like this medicine and am going to insist on another medication.
