Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Two years ago while still taking atenolol since 1994, my blood pressure increased from a relatively normal 120/80 to 140/80, so my doctor put me on Lisinopril, but that wasn't working, then after my physical a year ago, my doctor switched it to amlodipine besylate, and since then my blood pressure is now ranging 145/90 something, with a heart rate in the 90's, when it was consistently in the 60's.
From this study (3 years ago):
leg swelling edema from Norvasc. Increased heart rate by about 15 points.
