Hello I was prescribed amlodipine after a mild cva and upon release from the hospital I was told to take 5 mg twice per day along with 5 mg of ramipril. I have been on these drugs now for four (4) years and the dosage has been increased to 10 mg of amlodipine 2x per day and 10 mg of ramipril 2x per day.
