Amlodipine Besylate for Other: This drug was prescribed to me for daily migraines and it has made me bedridden with migraines. I have been sleeping in a dark room with a fever but the chills, eating only tea and toast and having vomitting and diarrhea. I was working up to taking 4 2.5 mg a day when that did not work. I stopped completely. This is my second day off taking two of the meds the docs did not want me (old RX)to take and I'm up and starting to feel better even ate some soup.

Amlodipine Besylate for Other: It has helped some with blood pressure problems, but not enough to keep walking around with baggy ankles...I felt like I was carrying around 5 extra pounds of fluid or swelling around my ankles and lower legs. My joints became painful...as soon as I can see my doctor, I am getting off this medication. I would not recommend it to anyone due to these side effects. Had begun to experience shortness of breath...after I decided to read up on this med, I knew why I had recently developed these symptoms...I have only been on it for about 2 months now...long enough to know I don't want to stay on it.

Amlodipine Besylate for Other: I started taking it for BP of 144/80 with stress. It did fluctuate so I agreed to take it. I just looked up the drug tonight because for the last four months I have been having shortness of breath and swollen feet. I see that many are having the same symptoms. I will be making a doctor's appointment tomorrow to get off of it. I find any exersion makes me short of breath.
