Amlodipine is usually taken by mouth as a pill once a day. It comes in 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg tablets. The highest daily dose of amlodipine is 10 mg. So it’s unlikely that you would take more than 10 mg of amlodipine in one day.

Most people start with a lower dose like 5 mg. This dose can be raised to 10mg if needed.

If you already take other blood pressure medicines, if you are small, elderly, or have liver disease, your doctor may use 2.5 mg as the starting dose.

Once a day is the way!
