Amlodis review



buy Amlodis Buy Amlodis
Amlodis is a channel blocker, more specifically it is a calcium channel blocker that is used mainly for chest pain, also called angina, and hypertension. Since calcium makes the arteries contract and causes the arteries to become narrow, by blocking the calcium, Amlodis helps the blood flow into the heart more smoothly. It also relaxes the muscle in the arteries to help the heart pump blood. Additionally, it reduces blood pressure and increases blood flow to other parts of the body. Chest pain is greatly reduced by the extra supply of blood to the heart. Usually the medication of choice when treating hypertension and angina, Amlodis helps the heart deal with hypertension by increasing the blood flow and relaxing the muscles, this way the heart doesn't have to work so hard.

Any prescription or non-prescription medications should be reported to your doctor before taking Amlodis. Prescription medications for HIV or AIDS, prostate problems, seizures, fungal infections, bacterial infections, or diuretics might be harmful to your body if taken with Amlodis. Even herbal medications, natural supplements, large amounts of calcium, or vitamins may alter the effectiveness of the medication. Also, if the patient has ever had liver disease or heart disease those organs may be weakened and thus more susceptible to the harmful Amlodis effects. Inform your doctor immediately if you have ever had any of those diseases. Patients already taking nitroglycerin for angina may continue taking it when Amlodis is prescribed. Nitroglycerin can be taken with Amlodis without any harmful effects.

Some known side effects are: edema, dizziness, headache, upset stomach, rashes, drowsiness, arrhythmia, swelling of the hands and feet, and excessive tiredness. These are negligible side effects that are common with most medications. Patients must be careful not to drive after taken Amlodis because of the drowsiness that comes with taking the medication. More serious side effects include severe chest pain, irregular heartbeat and fainting. If any of these occur seek immediate medical attention.

There is no proof that Amlodis is harmful to pregnant women, but if you are pregnant or become pregnant during treatment, inform your doctor as a precaution. Only take Amlodis if the benefits outweigh the possible danger to the fetus. A warning to mothers: researchers have not yet confirmed if the medication is passed through breast milk, so as a precaution, nursing mothers should stop breastfeeding while on Amlodis.
