Can I take 325 mg aspirin with my 10 mg Amlopidine Bestylate?

Or Tylenol?

dear XXXXXXX

thanks for your health concerns. there is no significant interaction between aspirin and amlodipine, it is a safe combination. If the aspirin is for pain relief, the usual recommended dose is not to exceed 1.5 g in one day; for acetaminophen you should not exceed 4 g in a day, or more than 2 g if you consume alcohol regularly.

I was wondering if taking an omega 3-6-9 supplement is ok while on Amlopidine Bestylate. I notice my blood pressure is elevated right before I take my medicine in the morning and then its lower in the evenings. Is that normal? would it matter if i take my medicing an hour or two earlier than the normal 11:15am or does it need to be at the same time every daY? Thank you.

Dear XXXXXXX

1) No interactions either with omega fatty acids

2) Amlodipine is a medication whose effect lasts about 24 hours so if you measure the blood pressure at the "tail" of that period might be more elevated; it is not concerning. The best practice is to take the medication exactly at the same time each day to avoid ups snd downs

Best regards
