For High Blood Pressure: “Was on amlodipine for 2 years. Legs started to tighten terribly and feet swelling so GP put me on felodipine. WOH. Tingling all over body, numbness to the point of dropping cups etc. Headaches rendering me to bed, couldn't lift head off pillows without feeling nausea and dizziness. Then started coughing up blood. This was all in 3 weeks. Stopped taking it and all returned to normal after 3 days. But unfortunately blood pressure was high again. So now awaiting new medication.”

For High Blood Pressure: “After trying 2 or 3 different pills finally given 5mg felodopine & was great - until the pharmacy said they couldn't get hold of them & was given 2x 2.5mg of parmidXL. Within 3 days my B/P was back high again, feeling breathless and dizzy. Am told its the same drug,,,,but definitely has different results . Has anyone else experienced this?? What to do now ,,,,”

For High Blood Pressure: “This medication has brought great relief to my life at 70 yrs. My peripheral arteries are blocked (legs completely) and completely or partially blocked in other areas, including heart. I think due to a perinatal cause (my mother suffered meningitis during pregnancy in UK in 1942) - I have been told that my peripheral arteries are "spindly" but the main ones are fine (angiogram). Blood pressure (systolic) was 200 and I suffered numerous heart attacks and palpitations, prior to use of felodipine.”

Plendil (felodipine) for Raynaud's Syndrome: “I had been using Norvasc for 15 years with very limited success. Seven months ago my new GP prescribed Plendil 5mg. The effect was immediate and suppressed the Raynauds symptoms HOWEVER I became very hot and flushed in the face. I was given 2.5 mg for two weeks and then went back to 5mg with no further problems.”

For High Blood Pressure: “While this medicine was effective in lowering my blood pressure it had numerous negative side effects. It made me very sleepy, sensitive to heat, caused my ankles and legs to swell up so I needed a diuretic, it caused acid reflux with or without food, flushing, and made my depression much worse. I have since weaned off.”

For Raynaud's Syndrome: “My Raynaud's Syndrome is about 90% better. A cold steering wheel in the winter or early spring is almost the only time I have white fingers anymore. I can shop in the dairy and meat departments now, and don't get cold at work anymore. Taking felodipine has been a blessing for me.”

Plendil (felodipine) for High Blood Pressure: “Plendil was effective in controlling my blood pressure. The only reason I am not taking it is because I can not purchase this medicine anymore due to the company discontinuing the product. I have had problems finding a substitute for this medicine. If anything is available on the market, I need help.”
