2. What is Amlodipine Used For?
This medication is prescribed for two primary reasons: to improve the blood flow in the heart vessels (coronary arteries) and treat high blood pressure, or hypertension. If you have high blood pressure, you are at greater risk of experiencing a stroke or heart attack. Therefore, lowering your blood pressure to a healthy level will equally lessen your chance of having a heart attack or stroke. You can take amlodipine with other heart or blood pressure medications, too.
