What is an alternative to Amplodipine, I have ser...

  • What is an alternative to Amplodipine, I have serious side effects, including weight loss, weakness and loss of appetitite. My doctors wants me to stay on the med because my blood pressure remains high. But there must be something else I can take. This drug has been banned in Holland.

  • Sorry to read that. For me,

    Sorry to read that. For me, amlodopine, tho' causing a little weight loss, is less than other alternatives.

    I also take perindopril (10mg each), and with these I am happy - my blood pressure is now not too bad.

    I didn't like the alternatives I tried: atenolol, bisoprolol, or spironolactone.

    I suspect there is a great variation between individuals, so some of the others may work fine for you.
