Is it safe to increase the dosage of Amlodipine from 5mg to 10mg?
Last night my pressure was 190/63 & to day in the morning 198/73 before prescribing amlodipine my blood was tested.
Could I increase my dosage of amlodipine from 5mg to 10mg for the time being until I see a doctor next.
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.
My opinion is that you may uncrease the dose of amlopine to 10 mg till you see your doctor. This is to reach the treatment goal to lower the BP below 140 / 90 mmHg.
Hope this was of help!
Wish you health!
