amlodipine besylate is there any alternative

I need to view medication that are healthy alternative for Amlodipine ## What alternative medication if any that could be suggested for amlodipine. I am researching. I know that my doctor has the last word. This one is causing serious swelling of my feet. Is it correct to assume that this medication is exclusive and no other can replace it? Don't think so. ## Hi, Derrick! Sorry about the edema problem that you're having. There are many other medications available that could replace it, but it depends on what you're using it to treat. Are you treating high blood pressure, or some other cardiac issue? If you're just treating hypertension, you may do well with Metoprolol. Learn more Metoprolol details here. But a cardiac issue could require a medication in a different class...

Migraine headaches from Amlodipine?

Has anyone experienced migraine headaches while taking Amlodipine? ## No headaches but watched my blood pressure increase up to 200/95 immediately after it was swallowed. In the beginning it was okay but they changed manufacturers and who knows what inactive ingredients were added. Quit taking it and now only take Brand name Dyazide 37.5mg/25 mg capsule once a day in the morning same time every day. I even tried brand name NORVASC (amlodipine besylate) and that increased my blood pressure up to stroke levels. ## I have had no problem with Amlodipine. It has finally been the answer to my blood pressure problems. I was given 2.5 mg and it didn't help much but my doctor added another 2.5 mg at night and it's been wonderful. I have the 5mg to take - just in case. We tried that first...

white pill 238 and 16

small white pill with 238 on one side and 16 on other side ## small white round pill 238 on one side and 16 on other side ## amlodipine 5 mg ## Hello, I was not able to find a pill with the imprint that you described but searching for a pill with a 238 imprint led me to find a pill that I believe you are describing. According to this search on the National Insitute of Health's pill identifier [NIH Search Link] there is a amlodipine pill that has the imprint 238 and IG on the back, which could easily be mistaken for a 16. Below is some additional information that I sourced from the NIH website on this medication. Product Code: 76282-238 Name: Amlodipine 5 MG Oral Tablet Ingredient(s): Amlodipine Besylate Imprint: 238;IG Label Author: Exelan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Color(s): White Shap...

amlodipine besylate 10 mg is this time released

is the medicine amlodipine besylate medicine time released. ## Hi Barbara, Usually if a medication is time-released it will have one of the following abbreviations at the end of the drug name: XL, ER, SR, or perhaps some other similar notation. From my experience, if a label doesn't actually specify that it's time released in such a way, then it would probably be safe to assume that it's not. However, if you happen to know what the imprint/markings are on your tablet, I'd be happy to verify this for you. I hope this helps! ## The markings on his pill are IG on one side and 239 on the other. Thanks for the help ## What does BES after the printed name? ## @Barbara, My apologies for the late reply, as I just received notification of recent activity on this thread. I'm s...

Amlodipine and Losartan

I take 25 mg of Amlodipine and 10mg of Losartan. How long can I go without taking any before I am in danger? ## There is no way to say, so you should continue taking them as prescribed. The FDA warns that their typical side effects may possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Why are you missing doses? ## I'm taking losartan 50mg and I want to jump to amlodipine. What particular mg of amlodipine should I take to do it? ## My Dr has me taking 100 mg of losartan in the evening and 10 mg of amlodipine in the morning. The amlodipine only lowers my blood pressure to the 140/90 range and when I take the losartan in the evening it's down to 120/80 range. My question is, can I take the losartan and amlodipine together in the morning instead o...

How can I lower my blood pressure fast

I take amlodipine besylate 10mg + lisinopril 40mg + metoprolol 25mg, but because it is a holiday, of course, my blood pressure is sky high, 197/101 at the lowest. How can I lower it fast? I need help. ## Hi Babs, Sorry to hear about your condition. I think from an outside perspective, the most I can suggest is to simply find ways to remain calm and stress-free throughout the day. It's always easier said than done, but if it were me, I may consider practicing meditation, taking a moment to stop whatever I'm doing & giving myself a break from reality (or other relaxing strategies you come up with). Some deep breathing exercises may be beneficial as well. Also, from a dietary standpoint, I'd find ways to cut back on sodium, heavily processed foods and any artificial ingredi...

Amlodipine Besylate coated pill

I have been taking 10 mg ofr Amlodipine Besylate. My problem is that it tastes horrible. Are there any of these in the generic that are coated. I gag every time I have to take this pill. Any information would be appreciated so I can ask my doctor for a pill specific if there is one! ## I don't know of any that are coated, but what I can tell you is that if you are tasting it, then you probably aren't taking it properly.
