I'm an 18 year old male and going to start Norvasc (amlodipine) tonightfor my bp. Is it safe and won't it harm my development? I'm really scared to take it.

I'm an 18 year old male and going to start Norvasc (amlodipine) tonightfor my bp. Is it safe and won't it harm my development? I'm really scared to take it.

Hypertension: Norvasc (amlodipine) is pretty safe, but, if they haven't already, your doctors should rule renal or cardiac cause. An echocardiogram should be done to rule out coarctation of the aorta. I don't blame you for being upset about medications at the age of 18. Watch the documentary "forks over knives" if you want to learn about how to improve your BP and life expectancy with nutrition. ...Read more

Can I safely take Norvasc and Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) interchangeably? I have a supply of both. Thank you.

Can I safely take Norvasc and Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) interchangeably? I have a supply of both. Thank you.

Not interchangeable: Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) is amlodipine plus benzazepril. Norvasc is amlodipine alone. Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) would be more potent in lowering blood pressure than Norvasc and could cause hypotension. Take medications only as prescribed.
