What is Amlodipine?

Amlodipine besylate helps to treat high blood pressure by relaxing the muscle cells in the blood vessels, preventing them from contracting as much. This allows blood to flow more freely around the body, helping the heart to work efficiently and lower high blood pressure.

This treatment also works towards prevent angina, and to lower cholesterol, which is why it's popular with many hypertension patients in the UK.

How does Amlodipine 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. Once the muscles have a reduced supply of calcium, they don't tend to contract as much and become more relaxed. This causes the arteries to dilate, allowing a high volume of blood to flow through more easily.[1]

As a result, the heart doesn't have to work as hard to pump blood through the arteries, which helps lower the body's blood pressure, as blood is circulating sufficiently around the body.

What are the benefits of Amlodipine?

As well as being proven to help lower high blood pressure, Amlodipine also brings with it secondary benefits, including:

How do I take Amlodipine?

If you have been prescribed Amlodipine besylate, then one pill should be taken at approximately the same time each day, with or without food.

Once this medication has been prescribed, you should continue to take it even if you feel well. That is because the majority of people don't experience symptoms when suffering from high blood pressure.

What dosages are available for Amlodipine?

You can buy Amlodipine besylate 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 depending on its effectiveness as well as any possible side effects you experience. The maximum dosage of Amlodipine which you can take each day is 10mg.

What happens if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, it isn't a disaster, so simply take the missed dose as soon as you remember and skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose.

It is advised not to take an extra Amlodipine tablet to make up for the missed dose.

Are there any side effects when taking Amlodipine?

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 quantities are gradually increased.

The more common side effects that patients sometimes experience include:

  • Dizziness or light-headedness
  • Headaches
  • Persistent, dry coughs
  • Swelling of the hands, feet or ankles[2]

You should consult your doctor immediately if you experience any signs of a strong 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.

What are the precautions/interactions of Amlodipine?

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 high blood pressure treatment. In particular, you should tell your doctor if you have suffered a heart valve problem, congestive heart failure, or liver disease.

It's not known whether this medication may 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 advised to buy Amlodipine tablets if you're pregnant. If you're breastfeeding, you should stop before using this treatment.

  • Amlodipine should not be taken with more than 20mg of Simvastatin daily
  • It is strongly advised to avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice with Amlodipine

Amlodipine and alcohol

It is advised not to drink alcohol when taking this medication as sometimes in the short-term; alcohol can further lower blood pressure. Not to mention, in the long-term alcohol is a known contributor to hypertension.

For further information about side effects, precautions, and interactions, please refer to our patient leaflet, which is available for download, towards the bottom of this page.

Amlodipine and Simvastatin

It is advised that you use Amlodipine with caution if you are also taking Simvastatin tablets. Simvastatin is a prescription medication, used in the treatment of high cholesterol. It is also used to reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems.

Taking high doses of Simvastatin with Amlodipine can increase the risk of developing side effects, such as muscle pain and cramps. Therefore, in order to avoid these side effects, your doctor may adjust your Simvastatin dosage, or provide you with a different statin.

How can I buy Amlodipine online safely?

Ordering Amlodipine besylate in dosages of 5mg and 10mg online is simple and straightforward. All you need to do is complete our quick and easy online consultation. One of our partner doctors will ask you a few questions about your medical history, and this information will help them decide whether it's suitable for you to purchase Amlodipine. Once your order has been approved, it will be sent to our pharmacy for express dispatch. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our friendly patient support team.
