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.
