What is Amlip-10?
Amlip containing the active ingredient amlodipine besylate is considered a calcium channel blocker type of medication. The medication can be used alone or along with other medication to help relax the blood vessels and allow the heart to pump blood easier as well as increasing the supply of blood to the heart. The tablets can be used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), certain types of chest pain (angina) and other conditions caused by coronary artery disease.
How is Amlip-10 used?
Amlip is usually taken orally once per day or as directed by a doctor. The medication can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a full glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. Do not discontinue the medication without consulting a doctor, even if you feel well, as high blood pressure often does not have visible symptoms.
Patients using Amlip may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Upset stomach
- Excessive fatigue
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Irregular heartbeat
- More frequent or severe chest pain
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
- Swollen hands, ankles or feet
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
