I would explain as follows:

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Regarding your concern, I would like to know the dose of Amlodipine that you are taking and your mean blood pressure values.

Some foods that may help reduce blood pressure naturally are:

- garlic, lemon juice, fruits, a lot of vegetables.

I would also recommend reducing maximally salt and caffeine intake.

If your blood pressure values drop naturally with these foods, you can gradually taper Amlodipine dose.

Hope you will find this answer helpful! Feel free to ask further.

Kind regards,

Dr.Iliri
