Anyone on floudipine (plendil) having insomnia problems?
Gambino,
Astra-Zeneca indeed DOES list insomnia as the main "nervous/psychiatric" side effect from felodipine (Plendil), with depression, anxiety and irritability pulling up the rear.

I found these symptoms were EXTREMELY pronounced with a horrible sister drug, amlodipine (Norvasc) and would never consider either of these drugs appropriate for plain vanilla hypertension without other severe cardiac conditions requiring heart weakening.

If you are taking a beta blocker also, the insomnia is likely to be even worse because the CCB enhances the effect of the BB!
