Generic Norvasc is inexpensive and very effective. It can cause swelling in some people but I have not have that problem and I have been taking it for 6 years. Diuretics can be give with it if this is a problem.

Comment:
While taking this medication the systolic number would range 98 to120 but the diastolic would immeadiatly go to 100 to 110 and my heart rate would jump to 120. My ankles would swell and my hair thinned. I stopped taking it after several years. I'm done. Diet, excercise and weight loss is the only cure.
