Amlodipine Tablet

As we get older, many of us will require medication to lower our blood pressure, and one of the most common management plan for this is with amlodipine tablets. Hypertension, or high blood pressure is common but requires treatment to avoid damage to other organs including kidneys and the brain.


Hypertension is a long term medical condition in which the pressure within the arteries is persistently raised. Despite not causing symptoms, if left untreated it can lead to strokes, heart attack and kidney diseases. High blood pressure has a number of risk factors including lifestyle factors such as a sedentary lifestyle, a high salt diet, obesity, smoking and excess alcohol consumption. Sometimes, addressing these factors or habits can be enough to bring your blood pressure back to a healthy reading. However, if your doctor or pharmacist recommends that you begin treatment, they may start with classic blood pressure tablets; amlodipine.

What is Amlodipine?

Amlodipine belongs to the group of antihypertensive medications known as calcium channel blockers. They work by disrupting the movement of calcium in blood vessels to reduce the arterial pressures.

Amlodipine can be used alone or in combination with other blood pressure medications if more than one treatment is required. With hypertension that is particularly difficult to treat, taking multiple medications is a common place.

Calcium Channel Blockers

Calcium channel blockers have been used since 1960s and are also a safe drug choice. Some side effects can be experienced, including leg swelling, and therefore it is important to speak to your GP, doctor or pharmacist if you experience any difficulties taking the medication.
