Ok I am holding a prescription for Amlodipine generic for Norvasc. I am really nervous about adding another pill to the pile again. The choice was either this or nitro. Cardiac Doctor said to try this.
So tomorrow I am supposed to start this. is it also addictive like the Nitroglycerine? Is there not something with less harsh side effects?

The pain I have been having is horrible but to have some of these side effects well I just spent the last 6 months naucious and sick constantly.. so am not looking forward to starting these pills. Can someone give me pros and cons before I start them tomorrow? I will hold off a couple days if need be.
Thanks so much!
