My wife toked amlodipine two times and she feels so weak. After that she been weak for almost a week and she complain for steffi muscles. Can someone tell me what was that. Than you.
She probably went through her blood to fast and now that she isn't taking it it's drained her and she is weak, once her system readjusts she should be okay. Now i'm not a doctor and this is just MY OPINION from what i read about it.
What is amlodipine?
Amlodipine is in a group of drugs called calcium channel blockers. Amlodipine relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow.
Amlodipine is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) or chest pain (angina) and other conditions caused by coronary artery disease. This medication is for use in adults and children who are at least 6 years old.
Amlodipine may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Hope this helped if not i'm sorry.
Yes, muscle cramps and weakness are serious side effects of Amlodipine. For future reference the following is a link to a list of the side effects of this medication:
Your wife needs to discuss these side effects she has experienced with her doctor and decide if she needs to try a different medication to control her high blood pressure. She should not let this condition of high blood pressure go untreated.
Even i take amlodipine 5 mg twice daily.When i strted with the medication, i experienced dizziness and stiffness in my joints especially knees in the first week. So i consulted my physician and he said it was a side effect of amlodipine and tht i will be normal after a few days. And tht was what happened... i got used to the medication and nw i dnt experience any kind of dizziness of stiffness in my joints and also my blood pressure is under excellant control.
Hope this answer is useful to you.
