What is amlodipine?
Amlodipine is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure and coronary artery disease.
Taking amlodipine can also help reduce your chances of having a stroke or heart attack, or developing kidney disease. Amlodipine can be taken alone or alongside other prescription drugs that treat hypertension, as directed by your doctor.
Amlodipine should be taken as part of a comprehensive cardiovascular risk management program that may also include things like diet, exercise, limiting salt intake, and diabetes management. You should speak with a doctor before making any changes to your diet and regimen.
