Does amlodipine cause weight gain?

Amlodipine can cause weight gain, but this is rare. If you are gaining weight while taking amlodipine, talk to your GP about trying an alternative medication.

Can amlodipine cause erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is a rare side effect of amlodipine. If you experience erectile dysfunction while taking amlodipine, talk to your GP about switching to a different medication.

Does amlodipine cause swollen ankles?

Swollen ankles are a common side effect of amlodipine. Amlodipine causes your body tissues to retain (hold onto) fluid which can make your ankles swell. While unpleasant, this side effect is not harmful. Sitting with your feet raised may help reduce swelling, but if the swelling gets worse or persists, talk to your GP about trying an alternative medication.
