Comment:
While taking this medication the systolic number would range 98 to120 but the diastolic would immeadiatly go to 100 to 110 and my heart rate would jump to 120. My ankles would swell and my hair thinned. I stopped taking it after several years. I'm done. Diet, excercise and weight loss is the only cure.

Am 69 yr old female taking for a year. Dry skin, blurry eyes, slightly swollen ankles. Serious afternoon fatigue which I'm not tolerating well. On 5mg of amlodopine at night. BP 120/80 usually. It works but I hate the fatigue! I've serously lost my ambition.

Comment:
I am having such terrible pains in my legs & ankles, I started taking Norvasc oral this week. I really could not believe it could be the meds, but after going on line & reading the reviews I will not take anymore and call my Dr. on Monday. I can barely stand up & the pain is awful.
