  • Perceived effectiveness for Elevated blood pressure: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Headaches, Edema (fluid retention)

Apr 7, 2010 (Started Mar 20, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Elevated blood pressure: Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I think Norvasc is the worst drug I've ever taken. After my transplant, I was worried that my kidney wasn't functioning correctly because my ankles would swell. I did some research and found that Norvasc can cause moderate-severe swelling, so I stopped taking it for a short time and my swelling went away. For someone who wears shorts almost every day of their life, ankle swelling is not something I am willing to live with. I take this drug until I see my ankles getting puffy, and then I stop for a few days, then when the swelling subsides, I start again.
Side effects: Headaches, Edema (fluid retention)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Migraine headaches: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take this medicine for migraine prevention, not for blood pressure. I tend to have low blood pressure as it is, so this medicine unfortunately lowers it a little more. The good thing is that it definitely keeps me from getting a full blown migraine. If I get a headache now (which is rare), I only get a normal headache and it goes away fairly quick. Before I took Norvasc, I was getting Migraines at least 2 times a week.
Side effects: Fatigue
