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 atenolol - can i take them together

I feel my heart beating irregularly and I was taking them before but my doc said to stop. Why, I don't know? I went to 'a and e' and the doc said I had a slight heart murmur. ## My heart beats faster when I take amlodipine and atenolol together.

Burning in the throat

I take Amlodipine 5mg - it is sort of oval shaped and I find it difficult to swallow. I take it with nearly half a glass of water. However 2 days ago the pill got stuck at the back of my mouth and actually dissolved. I immediately felt a severe burning pain which was agony (I have a high pain threshold but this was unbearable). After some minutes the burning passed but for a time I couldn't eat or talk. My voice is still affected and at times drops to a whisper. I can't find anything relevant to this and I wonder if anyone else has experienced it. ## Many pills contain harsh ingredients that can cause those types of symptoms if the medication dissolves in your mouth or throat. I've experienced it several times, even just taking OTC Benadryl, it burned my mouth and made my to...

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...

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...

stopped 5mg. norvask & MY BP NORMAL 2 DAYS AFTER ## I have 90% of the symptoms listed and even the rare ones . I'm out of the medicine as of today and don't want to take it any more. ## I have been on Amlodipine for about 1 year. I started out taking 5mg but BP didn't come down, went up to 10 mg and started with the swelling of the feet ankles and legs, also had joint pain in my toes which made it hard to walk. Doc lowered it to 5mg again and the side effects stayed the same. Got sick of being run around by DR. so I took myself completely off Amlodipine 41/2 days ago. Swelling in the feet has gone down a lot but not completely, leg swelling is gone as is the joint pain. I quit drinking as of now and over all I an feeling so much better and get this my BP has gone down so...
