Amlodipine Effects On Sinuses And Vertigo

Mary Says:

What are the side effects of this drug which I am taking for elevated blood pressure? I have been experiencing some dry feeling in my sinuses and some vertigo. I wonder if it could be connected. I am taking 5 mgs a day.

I have noticed my hair is thinning a lot and I can see my scalp through it now. I take Amlodopine besilate and Leverthyroxin (for an underactive Thyroid). I have also had problems with my gums being very sore with the gum receding from the teeth. Do you think I should change from the Amlodopine to another blood pressure medication?

I was put on amlodipine 10mg by my cardiologist mid december for my blood pressure and plaque in my carotid. After 4 weeks of taking it, boots of insomnia started, as well as profuse sweating of hands and feet, and nausea. After a couple of days, i started getting dizzy, palpitations and tingling in my hands and feet. I fainted at work 2 weeks ago, and the doctor couldn't find out the problem. I almost fainted last sunday, and the cardiologist said that it could be side effects of amlodipine. I've been off amlodipine for bowt 2 days now, and put on enalapril 10mg instead. I can't really tell if the side effects are subsiding, because i still feel weird and get dizzy. Will this ever disappear?

Been taking amlodipine 5mg for several years - Lost the bottle and have not taken any for approx. 2 weeks. I now felt extremely dizzy several times, however my blood pressure is 104 over 70 - heart beat 26, which is extremely low. I cannot get a refill until mid August. What is the significance of my situation, as I take other blood pressure meds? Thanks.

Hi. My brother has been taking 10mg of Amlodipine for around six months thereabouts. He was hospitalized due to severe difficulty in breathing and he's still in the hospital getting tests, but he had 1.5 liters of fluid drained from his left lung. I'm concerned this might be due to him taking Amlodipine?

I used to run and swim for at least half an hour constantly, but after having stopped taking amlodipine abruptly I can only go for 5 minutes because of chest pains. After resting for some minutes I can run or swim again, but again no longer than 5 minutes. I have to rest every time for some minutes.
