Buy Amlodipine Online from a UK pharmacy

Our private online pharmacy service makes it easy to buy Amlodipine online. When you place an order with Prescription Doctor, we will need you to answer some questions about your health - this is so that our online doctor can ensure that it is safe to prescribe Amlodipine for you. If your order is approved by our doctor before 3pm, our UK based pharmacy will dispense and dispatch your item via a next-day discreet delivery.

Amlodipine is a medication used to lower blood pressure. It is a calcium channel blocker available in both 5mg and 10mg. It is only available via a prescription.


How Does Amlodipine Work?

Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker which causes the muscle cells in the walls of your arteries to relax, widening them. The blood pressure being pumped through these arteries is reduced. The heart is also able to obtain more oxygen, and chest pain is reduced or even prevented.


How Do I Take Amlodipine?

Since Amlodipine can only be received via prescription, your doctor will be able to give you full instructions on how to take this drug. The instruction will be printed on the medication label for reference.

Usually, Amlodipine will be taken once a day. It is best to try to take your medication at the same time each day as this will ensure you don’t take too much and that you don’t neglect to take it. Often you will be prescribed the 5mg dose initially. If this does not work, you will be prescribed the 10mg dose.

Amlodipine can be taken with or without food, swallowed with water. The tablets can also be dissolved in water, but should be drank immediately if you choose this option.


Side effects and cautions of Amlodipine

Before taking Amlodipine, it's important to familiarise yourself with the information presented in the patient information leaflet (PIL) which comes enclosed within the packaging. This leaflet contains important information about the side effects associated with the medicines, instructions on how to take it, ingredients and contraindications.
