Jameel Says:

My blood pressure is 100/65. Should I continue with the medication? I was diagnosed and given amlodipine 5mg per day.

You should take it, as long as your doctor instructs you to do so. There is no cure for high blood pressure, it can only be controlled by using medications, diet, exercise, or a combination of all 3.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, and increased urination.

Are you on any other medications?

My high blood pressure medication, Bioprexum Plus (Perindopril + Indapamide) is causing serious discomfort. What alternatives are there? I'm diabetic.
