Thanks for consulting us.
Hope you are doing well today.
Please note that the medicine itself is not a contraindication for travel but, the reason you were prescribed this medicine may well be an indication to avoid travel.
Amlodipine is commonly prescribed for high blood pressure or angina. I have no idea about you medical history & your state of health.
My humble advise for you is to visit your physician or cardiologist & take a written fitness for yourself to be fit for travel ( your airline may ask you to provide this ) & ask for any special precaution you may need while traveling. Your doctor may also ask about any symptom you have & the distance you wish to travel.
Please also make sure you take with yourself the amount of drug required during your journey & don't forget to take actual prescription with you as some airlines do require that.
You should also make sure about the healthcare facilities available at your destiny & how to contact them in case of emergency?
Wish you good health & a happy journey.
Best Regards.
