18 Jul 2020 Since the day I took this medication I've been so sick that I went to the hospital emergency room three times. I'm off the pill. How do I get rid of the side effects that are making me so sick?

15 May 2016 I have been taking Amlodipine Besylate for 9-1/2 weeks. I was completely satisfied with it until recently I started feeling extremely tired thru out the day. I switch to taken it at night a couple of days ago and that seem to have helped the daytime tiredness. I am concerned about possible skin rash and hair loss. I was previous on Varsartan 40 mg, which could have contribute to mild hair loss. But at the time I wasn't paying attention until I read that Amlodipine causes hair loss. I am also getting bumps under the skin that come and goes. The rash just started the last couple of weeks.

02 May 2016 I have been taking amlodipine Besylate for over 1 year. I did really well on it at first. I started seeing brusing on my arm. then my hand. looks like was bleeding inside. Then the pain in my arms started hurting for about 2 months. Then my fingers & toes began to feel numbness , tingling , swelling feet and hands. I stopped take this medication 1/16 . Now it is 5/16. the side effects are still present even after 5 months. I still have sleepless nights of pain , numbness , tingling, burning sensations & swelling in feet and hands. My doctor is not familiar with my side effects. he says it's is rare. Not sure what to do. Do not take this medicine it is very dangerous
