My husband just recently (2 months ago)began taking amlodipine 5mg. I am seeing a significant change (not good) in his normally calm and patient demeanor, and his sex drive is completely gone. His anger and frustration is being directed at me. I'll be calling his Dr. tomorrow, and hopefully, he'll prescribe something different before it's too late.

This medication was prescribed to me by my cardiologist on 08/01/08. At the time my BP was 156/102. My cardiologist also recommended that I purchase a blood pressure monitor. I used the blood pressure monitor today for the first time and my reading was 122/87. This medication has drastically reduced my high blood pressure in a very short period of time.

Comment:
Began taking amlodipine after my accident in 2003 along with maxzide for blood pressure. Though it helped lowered my BP, it also caused swelling in my ankles, fatigue, and a severely decreased libido. Stopped taking it and replaced it with hawthorne berries and cayenne supplements. BP has been normal ever since and the side effects are gone.
