What is Amlodipine?
Amlodipine besylate, also known as Istin, helps to treat high blood pressure by relaxing muscle cells in blood vessels, preventing them from contracting. This lets blood flow more freely around the body, helping the heart to work efficiently and lower high blood pressure. This treatment also works to prevent angina and lower cholesterol, which is why it's popular with many hypertension patients.
Patients starting to use Amlodipine besylate are usually prescribed a lower dosage at first, which will then be increased by the doctor.
What are the benefits of using this treatment?
As well as being proven to help lower high blood pressure, Amlodipine also brings with it secondary health benefits, including protecting the body against angina and lowering cholesterol, all in a convenient single daily dose.
How does this medication work?
Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker, which works by blocking the transport of calcium into the smooth muscle cells lining arteries in the body. This causes arteries to dilate, allowing more blood to flow through easily. As a result, the heart doesn't have to work as hard to force blood through arteries, which helps lower high blood pressure.
How do you take this treatment?
If you're prescribed Amlodipine besylate, you should take one pill at the same time each day, with or without food.
Amlodipine besylate is sold in two different dosages from HealthExpress: 5mg and 10mg. The dosage prescribed depends on your medical condition and your response to the medication. It's likely that you'll start on a lower dosage, which will increase with time. The maximum dosage you can take each day is Amlodipine 10mg.
When this medication has been prescribed to you, you should continue to take this medication even if you feel well, that's because the majority of people don't experience symptoms when suffering from high blood pressure.
Who can take it?
Although Amlodipine besylate is prescribed to patients who need to lower high blood pressure, there are a number of factors that could prevent you from being prescribed this amlodipine. In particular, you should tell your doctor if you suffer from a heart valve problem, congestive heart failure or liver disease.
It's not known whether this medication will be harmful to an unborn baby, or if it passes into breast milk which could harm a nursing baby. For these reasons, it's unlikely you'll be prescribed Amlodipine besylate if you're pregnant. If you're breastfeeding, you should stop before using this treatment.
What are the side effects?
Using any type of prescription medication means that you could potentially develop side effects, though the majority of people take Amlodipine besylate without complication. It's more likely you'll develop side effects when taking Amlodipine 10mg because the dosage is high, which is why dosages are gradually increased.
The more common side effects that patients sometimes experience include dizziness or light-headedness; headaches; persistent, dry coughs and swelling of the hands, feet or ankles.
You should consult your doctor immediately if you experience any signs of a severe reaction such as a rash, swelling of the mouth or difficulty swallowing or breathing. If you experience any severe side effects, you should also seek medical help immediately. These could include darker urine, fainting, slow or irregular heartbeat or persistent nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
