Taking amlodipine for hypertension. Lost lot of weight. How can I stop medication?
How do I wean my self off of amlodipine besylate - 10 mg per day? I take it for high blood pressure in conjunction with a beta blocker . I have recently lost 15 lbs. and my blood pressure is lowering.... 110/76 this morning. I dont want blood pressure to go too low. What blood pressure reading would be too low? I am traveling for work and can t get to my dr. for 2 more weeks.
First how did u check ur BP, if by electronic machine then you should get checked with medical proffesional before changing ur dose. If still ur BP is coming 110/76 then u can reduce dose of amlodipine to 5 mg,
