will the flushing feeling with amlodipine eventually go away as my body gets used to it?

Probably.. but: That flushing feeling may be due to the drug's dilating your blood vessels. This may probably go away with time but you should consider that this may mean your dose needs adjustment. Dilating your blood vessels reduces your blood pressure. Too much dilation means too much drop in your pressure. This can cause you to get dizzy, faint, or cause a fall. Check it out with your physician Good Luck

Amlodipine: flushing is a side effect of the medication and there is no clinical research study that has proven that it goes away with time. It seems to be on a case to case basis as in some it has resolved.
