high blood pressure - amlodipine

I have been on amlodipine for about 18 months. Swollen ankles from the beginning. One ankle is now very painful and affects my mobility. Is it amlodipine? Is there another drug or treatment?

Re: high blood pressure - amlodipine

Yes I think it's, You should try 12.5mg of a HCTZ which is a duiretic and it may solve this problem for you. If it didn't work I think you may need to change the drug class, which is called Calcium Channel Blocker, to a new drug class like ARB (Cozaar, Benicar, Atacand and so on).

Have you tried any other medications for High BP before?
Goodl luck,
