Hi there - I was prescribed Amlodipine 5 ml on 4/24/12 - prescribed Avalide 300/25 mg on 8/19/13 - started having side effects around 10/2013. I was also going thru a very stressful time in my life with caregiving for my elderly parents & getting kids off to college. My Dr said my symptoms were caused by anxiety. On 6/17/17 my Dr upped my Amlodipine to 10 ml. I stayed on the 10 ml until 7/7/2017 until I could no longer function with the horrific side effects. At that time is when I discovered a forum for Amlodipine where everyone had the same side effects as me. Now, my question to you is, was I given a toxic dose of RX s? Because I have read that there is a interaction between Amlodipine & Irbesartan (Avalide)- please advise - thank you!
