Amlodipine Besylate definitely causes erectile problems!!!!! Is is not the same drug as Norvasc even though it claims to be the same. I took Norvasc for years with erectile problems, not to mention the headaches.

Correction to my earlier posting. The Norvasc did not cause erectile proglems.

Female aged 67yrs, after starting Norvasc 5mg ,I started to suffer from muscle pain, knowing that I am taking Atacand plus and crestor 20 too. Is the pain caused by Norvasc alone,or due to this combination? I already did the CPK test and it was normal. please advise me what to do. Thank you in advance.
