Hello,

Definitely, you can take Amlodipine for high blood pressure and B complex you can take as supplement, both together.
Regarding amlodipine, sometimes we see side effects like Pedal edema. Otherwise, it is a safe drug.

Thank you for your query.

Take care

I just got on hypertension medication. I feel tingling sensation and numbness in my legs. Is it the side effect of amlodipine or it is a symptom of hypertension?
Thanks

Hello,

Thanks for the follow up.

In my opinion, the tingling sensation and numbness is not due to amlodepine. You should continue taking amlodepine. Yes, it may happen due to hypertension.

Take care.
