GENERIC NAME

Amlodipine (am-LODD-a-peen)


DRUG USES

For those patients who have high blood pressure, and is sometime used to treat angina (chest pains).


HOW DRUG WORKS
 

This drug blocks normal passage of calcium through cell walls, preventing arteriole narrowing.


HOW TO TAKE
 

Amlodipine is normally taken orally once daily. It is taken orally and may be taken with or without food.


SIDE EFFECTS

headache, dizziness or lightheadedness, water retention (edema), nausea, or abdominal discomfort, flushing and weakness.


PRECAUTIONS

This medication should probably not be used if you have any history of liver disease or of congestive heart failure.


OVERDOSE

Seek medical attention immediately. For non emergencies, contact your local or regional poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.


DRUG INTERACTIONS
 

The effects of beta blockers (also for blood pressure) may be increased by amlodipine. Also, use of amlodipine at the same time as fentanyl (for chronic severe pain) may cause severe drop in blood pressure, so caution is advised. For more information on drug interactions, talk to your pharmacist.


MISSED DOSE

Take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular schedule. Do not double doses.


PREGNANCY / NURSING

If you suspect that you may be pregnant, talk to your doctor. There are no clear answers, but animal studies suggest caution during pregnancy, and use should only be when risks are outweighed by possible benefits. For nursing mothers, it is not known if amlodipine is excreted in breast milk, so caution is recommended.


STORAGE

Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store it at room temperature and away from excess heat and moisture (not in the bathroom). Throw away any medication that is outdated or no longer needed.
