Usage/Dosage

For the treatment of hypertension: In general, for adults, take 1 to 2 tablet(s) (2.5 to 5 mg of amlodipine) once a day. If the dose seems to be insufficient, the dose may be increased up to 4 tablets (10 mg of amlodipine) once a day. The dose may be adjusted according to your symptoms. For children 6 years or older, take 1 tablet (2.5 mg of amlodipine) once a day. The dose may be adjusted according to the age, body weight, symptoms, but the maximum dosage is 2 tablets (5 mg of amlodipine) per day. Strictly follow the instructions.

The medicine is designed to be taken without water. Crush it slightly with the tongue and swallow with saliva. Alternatively, it can be taken with a glass of water/lukewarm water like other general medicines.
If you are a patient with hypertension, you do not have to take the missed dose on that day. Continue your regular dosing schedule from the following day. If you are a patient with angina, take the missed dose as soon as possible. However, if there are less than about 8 hours before the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. You should never take two doses at one time.
If you accidentally took more than your prescribed dose, consult with your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not stop taking this medicine unless your doctor instructs you to do so.
