 2  High blood pressure Blood pressure readings did come down but nagging fatigue seemed to go hand in hand as well as some vision issues. Fairly active person but I can't make it through the day without a 2-3 hour nap now. If I stop activity at work I crash like coming down from sugar high. Attributed vision shift to aging but now I'm not sure....went downhill at the start of med.....hopefully effects are somewhat reversed with switch. Belching more also possibly gerd increased.

AMLODIPINE BESYLATE  (AMLODIPINE BESYLATE):  Amlodipine is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Amlodipine belongs to a class of drugs known as calcium channel blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. Amlodipine is also used to prevent certain types of chest pain (angina). It may help to increase your ability to exercise and decrease the frequency of angina attacks. It should not be used to treat attacks of chest pain when they occur. Use other medications (such as sublingual nitroglycerin) to relieve attacks of chest pain as directed by your doctor.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
