Hello doctor,

I have high BP from last night 160/110 but I am not feeling anything wrong. I am 60 years. I have taken Amlodipine 5 mg one tablet last night but I have a sleepless night. Should l take the same medicine 10 mg now?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your blood pressure is high considering your age. Although you are asymptomatic you need to control blood pressure to avoid complications related to high blood pressure. If Amlodipine 5 mg cannot able to control blood pressure than combination antihypertensive medication or high dose of Amlodipine can be prescribed. For getting prescription, you need to consult a nearby physician.
