Amlodipine is a prescription medication used
to treat high blood pressure and chest pain (angina). Amlodipine belongs to a group of
drugs called calcium channel blockers, which help relax blood vessels. This makes it easier
for the heart to pump blood. This medication comes in tablet form and is usually taken
once a day, with or without food. Common side effects of amlodipine include headache, swelling
of legs or ankles, tiredness, and nausea. This medication is only to be used if prescribed
by your healthcare provider. For RxWiki, I’m Teresa Brucker.
