In brief: Norvasc (amlodipine)

Amlodipine (norvasc) has a very long (72 hours) half time.
This means that is takes 3 days for 1/2 of the dose to be eliminated by the body. In conclusion, it doesn't matter when you take it as long as you take it every day :-).

In brief: I like night , but..

I like night , but it probably doesn't matter much as long as you take it once per day, every day.
