Amlodopine

Were you looking for information about Amlodipine? Amlodopine is a common misspelling of amlodipine.
 
Amlodipine besylate (Norvasc®) is approved to treat the symptoms of several heart and blood vessel conditions, such as high blood pressure, certain types of angina, and coronary heart failure. Because this prescription medication is a calcium channel blocker, it helps to relax the blood vessels and improve blood flow by slowing down the rate at which calcium moves into the heart and blood vessel walls. Common side effects of amlodipine include dizziness, nausea, and water retention. Make sure to seek immediate medical attention if you think you may have overdosed on this medication.
