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...

Amtas 10mg

Hi, I have been taking Amtas-10mg for my hypertension for about a year. Since the time I started taking this tablet, I have noticed that my fasting blood sugar has steadily increased from 105 mg/dl to 165 mg/dl. Until I started taking this tablet, I had never had raised fasting blood sugar. My GP says my raised blood sugar has nothing to do with taking Amtas. I would like to have a second opinion on this matter. Thanks in advance. ## Amtas contains the active ingredient Amlodipine, which is a calcium channel blocker that's commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. And yes, it is known that Amlodipine can cause elevated blood sugar levels and it is usually warned against being used in people that are already diagnosed as Diabetic for that reason. I...

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...
