 Norvasc Amlodipine
Amlodipine (Norvasc (Pfizer) and generics) (as besylate, mesylate or maleate) is a long-acting dihydropyridine-type (DHP) calcium channel blocker used to lower blood pressure and to treat anginal chest pain. Like other calcium channel blockers, amlodipine lowers blood pressure by relaxing arterial smooth muscles, which decreases total peripheral resistance and therefore reduces blood pressure. In angina, amlodipine increases blood flow to the heart muscle (although DHP-class calcium channel b...

Any feedback on side effects from taking Norvasc? ## I want to know if anyone has bad leg cramps from this rxs.or any other side effectts. ## My daughter just started taking it and didn't complain of leg cramps, but she did have increased urination ## Just started taking it yesterday, and noticed that my head was hot and cheeks were flush. Had massive headache too. No leg cramps yet. Have you noticed if these side effects go away with prolonged use? ## These are common side-effects when someone first starts using Norvasc: Headache, stomach pain or gas, nausea, vomiting, facial flushing, drowsiness or dizziness, unusual weakness or tiredness . Most side effect do go away after your body adjust to the med, it can vary from person to person, but it usually takes approximately 2 weeks. ... ...

Norvasc
I started taking 10 mg of Norvasc 4 days ago and my feet & ankels were swollen to capacity...they almost hurt and they felt very hot-it was given to me for high blood pressure only. ## This is one of the bad side effects of the drug. I've been taking Norvasc for almost 6 years now. It had the same effect on me and I can only take 5 mg. a day without the swelling. I have also developed a rash on my lower legs as well and was told by a dermatologist that it could be from the medicine. I take 3 drugs to try and control my BP but I have yet to find anything that controls things. I've had hypertension for 20 years now and I fear that any day I will have a stroke or heart attack or kidney problems. Hope you will talk to your doctor about your ankles swelling. Most people have that... ...

Plendil vs. Norvasc
My doctor is transferring me off of Norvasc (which has worked great to keep my blood pressure under control) to Plendil because of a change in medications covered by my HMO. Has anyone else changed to Plendil and would you share with me if it worked as well as your former medication? ## Same thing happened to me, except in reverse. I had been tanking Plendil for years with great success. The Military Pharmacy switch to Norvasc. When I asked my Doctor, he said they were interchangable. ...

Lisinopril---Norvasc
I am concerned about taking both prescriptions, as I am tired all the time. I tell my Dr., but he says if it keeps the pressure down keep taking them. Just wondered if I am the only one out there feeling this way. ## no i feel the same way very tired all the time can not even clean house ## That is a nornal side effect for these, it should, however, wear off after a few weeks as your body adjusts to the med and the change in your blood pressure. If it doesn't, then please speak to your doctor again and make sure to stress how severe it is. ## i also take both medicines norvasac and linsopril. I just started and yes, it makes me tired. ## I take Lisinopril/HCTZ, Lipitor, and Norvasc (1 year). I've been running for years, but can barley run 5 minutes without back and leg pain. I... ...

norvasc side effects
I am concerned about my mother because she is experiencing ankle edema for 3 months now while taking norvasc. and one time my mother mentioned to me she experienced epistaxis (nosebleed) while walking in the mall. she said she took norvasc that morning before going to the mall and when the nurse checked her bp it was high:160/100.after taking a rest her bp normalized. when she asked her physician then she only prescribed diuretic to subside the edema. should we change her medicine and should we be alarmed by such incidence? ## The edema is a normal side effect, however, the elevated blood pressure and nose bleed are not! I suggest speaking to her doctor. ...

Norvasc vs. amlodipine
I have taken Novasc without significant side effects however amlodipine causes shortness of breath what is the difference ## Hello, Cherrylyn! How are you? It could be due to one of the inactive ingredients in the generic, they don't have to be the same as those used in the name brand. To avoid the problem, you may want to ask your doctor to prescribe it as brand medically necessary, so you no longer receive the generic fem your pharmacy. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No thank you, I've already done that. ...

Expiration Date Norvasc
the pharmacy put the label on in such a way that you cannot read the expiration date on the bottle without tearing it; the only thing that can be seen is the bar code with the numbers 8 0069-1540-68 8, a blue outlined box with 5283 in it, a partial 2-5 above a black box with 05-6819-32 underneath the black box, and a 9802 under a smaller bar code on the opposite side ## For tablets in a pharmacy dispensed bottle, the expiration date is one year from the date you received them from the pharmacy. :-) They last longer in the original factory sealed containers, but once that has been opened and they've been exposed to the elements that can cause degradation, the one year expiration applies. After that time, they begin to lose potency. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

EXPIRATION NORVASC 11/1/11
IS IT SAFE TO TAKE NORVASC AFTER EXPIRATION DATE ## Norvasc contains the active ingredient Amlodipine and while it doesn't get dangerous once it's past the expiration date, it can start to lose effectiveness. SInce it expired over a year ago, it isn't very likely that it will work as well as it did when it was new. Learn more Norvasc details here. Thus, it would really be best to get a new prescription. Are there any other questions or comments? ## What is the drug like lisinopril but does not have the coughing side effect? ...

Norvasc and Cozaar together
i accidentally took amlodipine besylate 10mg(usually am) along with losartan potassium 50mg(usually pm). Will this cause a problem for me? ## Did you contact your doctor? Did you experience any problems? There aren't any dangerous interactions that I can find listed, these medications are often prescribed together to help control high blood pressure and/or treat certain cardiac conditions. However, taking them at the same time could result in some hypotension, which may make you dizzy and drowsy. If it's very severe, you may need to seek medical attention. ...
