Trying to lower pressure with diet as well. My Internist said no pasta, potatoes, carbs and sweets. I guess lean meat and fish with greens like spinach. I need a diet that works fast with the Amlodipine

It is advised to reduce sodium intake to no more than 2.4 g sodium or 6 g sodium chloride per day. It is also advised that adequate intake of dietary potassium (approximately 90 mmol/d), helps in reducing the blood pressure.

A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products may lower blood pressure by 10-16 mm Hg.
