How does Amlodipine Work

Amlodipine can be prescribed in tablet form or as a liquid. You can either be prescribed 5mg or 10mg tablets.

When taking the drug as a liquid, you have to use a recommended quantity from your doctor to measure your dose.

 The doctor may recommend you start off with a dose of 5mg and get to increase your dosage gradually up to 10mg for adults. This happens when the doctor checks the response your body is giving to the treatment. To ensure the effectiveness of the amlodipine, you should take it regularly even when you do not feel sick.
