Can I take Norvasc along with Metoprolol?

My internal medicine doctor placed me on amlodipine 5mg to help with my bp being high over the last two weeks. I am taking together with metoprolol er 25mg. However, since I have left the appointment my bp is down to 126/89. Should I notify him or start the Norvasc 5mg or start 2.5mg of the Norvasc?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I would explain that your blood pressure values seem to be borderline now.

For this reason, I would recommend you to wait some days before starting Amlodipine and in the meantime closely monitor your blood pressure.

If your blood pressure values are within the normal ranges most of the time, then I would not recommend starting Amlodipine.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards.
