    Was put on this bp med since I had reactions to ace inhibitors. I was given 5mg, but told I could cut in half for the "low dose of 2.5 mg" instead. I noticed immediately after starting norvasc that I had severe headaches and dizziness at night. My bp hs gone up drastically, which defeats the purpose. Am stopping and reporting to my doctor and will see what else can be offered.
