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 problem with calcium channel blockers. Good luck.

I am a 58 year old male and have been taking Norvasc for nearly 2 years. I have noticed that my breast have become enlarged and developed gynecomastia. I have never had this problem before. Has anyone else had a similiar experience. If so, can someone suggest a substitute blood pressure medicine that they have taken that has not caused this problem?

Maybe try nisoldipine if you have insurance! if you have a medicare supplemental insurance, it may cost up to $300.00 a month. it really worked good for me, no side effects noted
