What is Amlodipine?
Amlodipine is an ‘anti-hypertensive’ calcium channel blocker that helps to relax blood vessels, improve blood circulation and reduce cardiac effort. Patients can use this treatment for high blood pressure and other conditions such as coronary heart disease. The medication helps in reducing the amount of calcium in the muscle walls of the blood vessels.
You can buy Amlodipine safely online after taking an online medical consultation to confirm your suitability for the treatment. A GMC registered doctor assesses your details and, if they feel that the treatment is suitable for your condition, a prescription will be sent to our pharmacy where your Amlodipine order is packaged and dispatched for same or next day delivery.
How does it work?
The smooth muscle in the artery walls requires calcium to contract efficiently and special calcium channels in the body supply these muscles with calcium. Amlodipine works by blocking these channels, causing the calcium to move to the muscles at a slower rate. If the muscles take in less calcium they will contract less and become more relaxed, allowing the vessels to dilate. This facilitates the passage of blood through the arteries so that the heart does not have to pump so hard to circulate blood through the body. As it becomes easier for blood to circulate around the body, oxygen-rich blood becomes more readily available to the heart. This is one of the reasons why Amlodipine can sometimes be used to treat angina.
Amlodipine tablets are a proven and convenient treatment for helping to reduce and control blood pressure. Other benefits from using this medication can include:
- Benefiting those at risk of health problems as a result of high blood pressure
- Helping to start lowering blood pressure levels within a month
- Helping with or lessening the risk of mild or severe angina
Amlodipine is a long-term treatment usually taken as a single daily dose until the end of your course. Amlodipine is available in two dosages (5mg and 10mg) and it is recommended in most cases that you start your treatment on the lower dosage, although an increased dosage can be taken if necessary.
Amlodipine works more effectively when taken with a healthy diet and regular exercise regime. If you miss a dose, ensure you take it as soon as you remember. Never take two tablets at once to compensate for a missed dose. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption while taking this treatment as this may cause your blood pressure to drop below a safe level.
Who can use Amlodipine?
It is possible to buy Amlodipine online from Meds4All if you are over the age of 18, struggling with high blood pressure that has been diagnosed by a doctor, and if your consultation has been approved by one of our doctors.
Who can not use Amlodipine?
You should not buy Amlodipine if you are pregnant or allergic to its active ingredient. Make sure you mention in your medical consultation if you have liver disease or any heart problems as these may mean that an alternative treatment may be necessary. You must also ensure that you mention any medications you are already taking as certain medications are incompatible with Amlodipine.
If you are using any beta blocker medications, then you should gradually stop using them; immediate cessation of a beta blocker could cause serious heart issues which cannot be prevented by using Amlodipine.
Experiencing side-effects whilst taking Amlodipine is rare but the most common side-effects can include:
- Dizziness, mild headaches, dry cough, swelling of the hands, feet or ankles
Consult your doctor if you experience any of these side-effects, as it could mean that you should reduce the dose or switch to an alternative treatment. Other rare side effects that could be experienced include:
- Weight change, blurred vision, anxiety or jaundice
These side-effects rarely occur but if symptoms do occur then seek immediate medical advice from your doctor.
