About Amlodipine

How does it work?

Amlodipine works by reducing the amount of calcium entering the cells of the heart and blood vessels. Calcium is needed by the muscles to help them contract. The calcium channel blockers stop the calcium entering pores on the surfaces of the muscles of the heart and blood vessels. This means that the blood vessels relax and the heart receives more blood which is oxygenated (has oxygen in it) and it is this which helps to lower your blood pressure.

How quickly does it work?

How quickly will my blood pressure go down? You should start to notice a difference in your blood pressure measurement between 4 and 10 days after starting to take Amlodipine. The normal starting dose for Amlodipine is 5mg per day but this may be increased if your blood pressure does not reduce enough. If this is the case, your GP may increase your dose to 10mg per day.

Side effects

Most people don’t experience any side effects when they take Amlodipine. However, common side effects may include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Sleepiness
  • Palpitations
  • Flushing
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Ankle swelling
  • Tiredness

If you feel like you are experiencing side effects and they last for more than a week then you should consult your GP.

In case of an emergency – if there is an emergency such as if you or someone you know is suffering from chest pain or collapses you should dial 999 and ask for an ambulance.
