From this study (1 day ago):
HJLH on Apr, 19, 2014:
I am a 46 year old female living in Maine. I was on Amlodipine for high blood pressure for several months and my menstrual cycle which had always been predictable stopped for 2 1/2 months, followed by a heavier than normal period. I figured it was likely the start of menopause. Due to swelling in my lower legs and ankles, my doctor changed my blood pressure medication to Losartan just a few days ago, and I just started my period, slightly early. In retrospect I believe that the Amlodipine was messing up my cycle.
cc on Sep, 3, 2013:
I am female living in southern California. I started taking this drug and my periods ceased.when I stopped the medication after six months due to swell ing in my extremities, my period reappeared.
From this study (1 week ago):

Have severe sweating with any amount of physical activity, such as washing dishes or folding clothes. Back pain in lower back to the point of feeling as if my legs will collapse and bend underneathme.
