Hypertension: New onset of these symptoms? Are you able to check your BP at home? If yes, do so. It quite elevated get medical assistance promptly. If you have been experiencing this since you began the Amlopidine - than it could be medication side effect as these are not uncommon side effects with this medication. If sx's just began & you can't check BP - to be cautious go to medical to be evaluated.
