Re: how to stop taking amlodipine 5mg

Hi -
My doctor had me stop taking Amlodipine after I had taken it for almost a year. The reason was that my legs were extremely swollen and I had tingling sensations in them. Has your doctor told you to stop Amlodipine? I quit cold turkey because I was not told otherwise. However, I have read recently (here and other places) that it's best to taper off. If you look up "Norvasc" on the internet, you will find all kinds of information about tapering off the drug. However, be sure that you consult your doctor also. Did your doctor prescribe another blood pressure drug to take the place of Amlodipine? I am now taking Bystolic to replace it. Good luck!
