Re: Amlodipine (Norvasc)
Amlodipine is actually quite effective, but it takes a little time to work. It is actually one of the BP meds with the fewest side effects, and I'd be more worried about your BP spiking to 190/100 than taking the med. It is also good for Raynaud's so if anyone has trouble with that, it relaxes the spasm in arteries. I am on 10mg of it, split 5/5 twice a day, and it works great for my BP and Raynauds with no side effects.
