Can I take Amlodipine Besylate instead of Amlodipine 5 mg per day ?

Good morning Doctor . I am on Amlodipine 5 mg tablet per day for controlling my BP successfully. I am out of my country and in Lebanon I found Amlodipine Besylate 5 mg as subtitute. Kindly advise if I can take Amlodipine Besylate in place of Amlodipine 5 mg per day. Thanks and regards.
