    I'm 49 and last week my bp is 180-109 and I take Vamlo 5 and for now my bp is 140-98. Do I carry on taking  the Vamlo 5? Apart from Vamlo 5 i'm also taking Ranbaxy Simvastatin usp 40mg for my cholestrol as it is 5.16 mmoI/L.

    Hi Flgade,


    Vamlo 5 mg is also known as Norvasc or Amlodipine besylate.  This medication is a calcium channel blocker and prescribed to treat high blood pressure and sometimes angina (chest pain).  I recommend discussing with your physician to determine if you need to continue or discontinue the medication.


    All the best,
