Can Norvasc (amlodipine) help an aortic aneurysm?

Can Norvasc (amlodipine) help an aortic aneurysm?

Indirectly yes: One of the approaches to the medical management of aaas is good blood pressure control. Norvasc (amlodipine) can certainly help lower one's blood pressure.

Confusing: Your heart rate should not be higher with amlodipine (norvasc). If your resting heart rate is now 110-130 bpm, you should be reevaluated, to make sure there is not something else wrong. ...Read more

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
