What is Amlopres-5?
Amlopres-5 can help relax and widen blood vessels to improve blood flow. The active ingredient amlodipine besylate belongs to a class of medications called calcium channel blockers. It can be used along with a proper exercise regime and diet to treat chest pain (angina) and high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering blood pressure can help prevent heart attacks, strokes and kidney problems.

How is Amlopres-5 used?
Amlopres-5 should be taken orally as directed by a doctor, usually once per day. The tablets can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a full glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the treatment. Do not discontinue the medication even if you feel well as high blood pressure often has no visible symptoms.

Adverse effects
Amlopres-5 may cause unwanted side effects such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness
  • Flushing
  • Stomach pain
  • Drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:

  • Swelling of the hands, feet or ankles
  • Mental or mood changes
  • Oedema
  • Fainting

  • More severe chest pain

Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
