LookOnline & Empower: Search engines, esp google, can rapidly find these answers for you (& me), e.g. Search "amlodipine t½" & go to nih, fda or edu websites. Keep in mind that chemical t½ life & physiologic t½ life may be very different, data is only a small group average & there are many variables. Also keep in mind that your primary medical decision maker (primary physician, if you will) is always you, no one else.
