Amlodipine Besylate Information

AMLODIPINE (am LOE di peen) is a calcium-channel blocker. It affects the amount of calcium found in your heart and muscle cells. This relaxes your blood vessels, which can reduce the amount of work the heart has to do. This medicine is used to lower high blood pressure. It is also used to prevent chest pain.

This medicine may be used for other purposes; ask your health care provider or pharmacist if you have questions.
