Blood Pressure Medicine?
My blood pressure is 160/90, the doctor recommends taking amlodipine 5mg once a day
Hello Anni! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Amlodipine is a drug used to treat high blood pressure. This drug is usually taken in a dose 1 time a day. If you take amlodipine in excess of the recommended dose by your doctor, your blood pressure can drop to dangerous levels with a drop in your heart rate. You can also feel intense nausea, dizziness, headache, and tightness. Because it works in the long term, taking excess amlodipine may not be dangerous, but you should be more careful not to take the drug twice. You drink lots of water to prevent blood pressure from getting too low. If you accidentally take it 2 times and feel the symptoms I mentioned, you should immediately go to the nearest hospital emergency room for immediate examination and treatment.
That's my explanation. May be useful.
