My Dr. put me on amlodipine about two years ago and I did fine as long as I was taking 5 mg of amlodipine daily.a month ago the increase which 10 mg of amlodipine and in the last two weeks I feel like my feet and ankles are swelling much more than they ever did. I’ve tried reducing salt and doesn’t seem to help at all. This really sucks and I feel like I have no ankles at all. I want to control my blood pressure but this is just unacceptable. Is a ready way to get rid of the swelling besides not taking this much amlodipine?April 27, 2012 at 9:14 pm #22714
Been taking AMLOCREEPINE (NORVASC) for just a week. Never had heart problems, B/P only 135/90 and now i noticed my ankles are swollen! In addition to that I had pain in my feet the first 2 days I took it and also I got caugh and i never cough before so much. Plus! With this garbagepine no-vasc my pulse rate went from usual 72 to 96-99 in just one day and stays there as long as I am taking this “i’m low deep in”! Also… my b/p is now 128 instead of 115 when I was taking toprol xl. I am throwing this amlodipine GARBAGE into the trash bin right away! I also will take note who invented this GARBAGE meds and who is producing this killer of almost healthy people!
