I don't know I just started taking them yesterday. I just took my pressure and it was 146 over 104.
Doctor: Dr. Amir, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Thanks for your details. I would say yes your blood pressure is on the higher side according to your age. Your blood pressure should be less then 140/95. This seems that amlodipine is not controlling it well and there might be need to add another blood pressure control medication. If you don't care for this high blood pressure then it can be dangerous but if your blood pressure be control with medications and life style modifications such as regular exercise, salt restriction, avoid junk food or spicy one. I will advise you to see cardiologist or your primary care physician for the re-review of your treatment for high blood pressure (hypertension). Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
