, I usually take 10 mg of amlodipine, but this is 5 mg of amlodipine, then I take 5 mg of 5 mg. Is that excessive …?

1 Answer:

Hello Batrisyia, thank you for asking.


Amlodipine is an anti-hypertensive drug that can widen the diameter of blood vessels, thereby improving blood flow. The dosage taken must be as directed by a doctor. It doesn't matter if you take 2 5 mg tablets at a time, because the total content should still be 10 mg. You must remember that you try to take medicine at the same time every day. Make notes if necessary, whether you have taken medicine or not, how many tablets, and at what time. If after taking the medicine then side effects arise such as dizziness or headaches, shortness of breath, a feeling of fainting, then immediately visit the nearest doctor. Do not take drugs with other drugs without doctor's advice because there is a risk of drug interactions.


Thus a brief explanation from me, hopefully useful. Regards.
