Indication

Hypertension
Amlodipine is indicated for treatment of hypertension and can be used as the sole agent to control blood pressure in the majority of patients. Patients not adequately controlled on a single antihypertensive agent may benefit from the addition of amlodipine, which has been used in combination with a thiazide diuretic, beta-adrenoceptor blocking agent, or an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor.
Myocardial ischemia
Amlodipine is indicated for the first-line treatment of myocardial ischemia, whether due to fixed obstruction (stable angina) and / or vasospasm / vasoconstriction (Prinzmetal's or variant angina) of coronary vasculature. Amlodipine may be used where the clinical presentation suggests a possible vasospastic / vasoconstrictive component but where vasospasm / vasoconstriction has not been confirmed. Amlodipine may be used alone, as monotherapy or in combination with other antianginal drugs in patients with angina that is refractory to nitrates and/or adequate doses of beta-blockers.

Dosage

0 TO 18 YEARS OLD
The use of amlodipine in children has not been established.

18 TO 65 YEARS OLD
For both hypertension and angina, the usual initial dose is 5 mg amlodipine once daily which may be increased to a maximum dose of 10 mg depending on the individual patient's response and severity. In majority of hypertensive patients with 5 mg/day, the dose may not necessarily be increased. For those who need higher dose, amlodipine can be increased to 7.5 mg/day with maximum dose of 10 mg/day.

The recommended dose for chronic stable or vasospastic angina is 5-10 mg.

ELDERLY OR WEAK PATIENTS
Fragile, or elderly individuals may be started on 2.5 mg once daily and this dose may be used when adding amlodipine to other antihypertensive therapy.

IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER DRUGS
No dose adjusment of amlodipine is required upon concomitant administration of thiazide diuretics, beta-blockers, and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors.

PATIENTS WITH IMPAIRED HEPATIC FUNCTION
The drug should be administered with caution in these patients.

PATIENTS WITH RENAL FAILURE
Amodipine may be used in such patients at normal doses.
