Avoid activities which are unsafe in case you get dizzy. You should limit these actions until you know how amlodipine affects you. For example, avoid:

  • climbing a ladder
  • driving a car
  • running a heavy machine
  • getting up quickly from sitting or lying down

Amlodipine may make you feel dizzy. Dizziness is not common with amlodipine because it works slowly to lower your blood pressure. Once you know how you react to the medicine, you can go back to your usual routine, if it doesn’t make you feel dizzy.

If you have dizziness that doesn’t go away, talk to your doctor. Most people get used to taking amlodipine. They find they can usually do all the same activities they used to do.
