Some patients have allergic reactions on taking Amtas (Amlodipine) which also has as side-effects rash, itching, swelling of extremities, flushing, just to name a few. So probably you may be developing either an allergic reaction to the medication or one of its side-effects.

Kindly stop the medication and see the physician who prescribed it as as soon as possible.

Best wishes.
