Recently I have noticed serious heaviness in my stomach and with moderate physical excertion, I have been experiencing shortness of breath. I have been taking Amlodipine Oral for almost 4 years and I'm starting to worry about these new side effects I'm experiencing.

I have had a lot of side effects since switching to Amlodipine. I've had leg swelling, rashes, and a dry mouth. I also feel like bugs are crawling on my skin, and I have to get up a lot at night to pee.
