Amlodipine - An Overview
Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker medication that may be used alone or in combination with other medications in the management of hypertension, chronic stable angina, and coronary artery disease. Through Push Health, people can request an amlodipine besylate prescription online, including amlodipine 10 mg, amlodipine 5 mg and amlodipine 2.5 mg and, when appropriate, get amlodipine tablets at a nearby pharmacy.
Amlodipine - Mechanism of Action
Amlodipine, marketed under the brand name Norvasc, is a medication used in the management of hypertension and some other conditions. Like diltiazem, nifedipine (Procardia), and verapamil, amlodipine belongs to a class of medications known as calcium channel blockers. As this type of drug, amlodipine inhibits the influx of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscle and cardiac muscle. Through this mechanism, amlodipine causes vasodilation of the vascular smooth muscle which results in a reduction in blood pressure. Amlodipine has not been found to affect serum calcium concentrations. Amlodipine is sometimes combined with the medication benazepril and marketed under the name Lotrel. Amlodipine is also combined with the drug valsartan (Diovan) to form the medication Exforge. Amlodipine has shown a favorable safety profile when used over long periods of time.
Amlodipine - Dosage and Cost
Amlodipine is the besylate salt of the long-acting calcium channel blocker amlodipine. Amlodipine besylate is found as a white crystalline powder. Amlodipine tablets are white tablets that are available in doses of 2.5 mg, 5 mg and 10 mg. After oral administration, peak plasma concentrations of amlodipine occur between 6 and 12 hours. The bioavailability is not affected if taken with food. While circulating, more than 90% of amlodipine is bound to proteins in the plasma. Amlodipine is converted into inactive metabolites in the liver and the majority of amlodipine metabolites are excreted in the urine. Amlodipine has a terminal elimination half-life of 30-50 hours which is not significantly affected in the setting of renal impairment. Depending on the dosing, amlodipine tablets are diamond, round, or elongated octagon in shape. Amlodipine tablets should be stored at controlled room temperatures of 59° to 86° F. The cost of amlodipine is affordable at fifteen cents per pill at many pharmacies. Amlodipine coupons may also be available at times online or from the manufacturer. Some insurance plans may also help cover costs associated with an amlodipine besylate prescription.
