More Details

This medication requires a prescription form your veterinarian.

Amlodipine besylate is a drug labeled for treatment of hypertension in humans that is used extra-label in the treatment of veterinary patients.

Amlodipine is a dihydropyridine L-type calcium channel blocker, which inhibits voltage gated calcium channels in both cardiac and vascular smooth muscle.

Oral amlodipine can be a useful agent in the treatment of hypertension in cats, and is considered the drug of choice for managing this condition.

Amlodipine Besylate tablets are available in 2.5 mg, 5 mg and 10 mg sizes in 90 count bottles.

Administration

Use as directed by your veterinarian.

Precautions

Contraindications / Precautions / Warnings

Because amlodipine may have slight negative inotropic effects, it should be used cautiously in patients with heart failure, cardiogenic shock, or hepatic disease. It should also be used cautiously in patients that are at risk for developing hypotension. A relative contraindication for amlodipine exists for humans with advanced aortic stenosis. Amlodipine use for pulmonary hypertension in dogs is not recmmended as systemic hypotension can occur.

Adverse Effects

Hypotension, bradycardia, and inappetence are possible; however, because of amlodipine’s relatively slow onset of action, these effects are usually absent in cats. Infrequently, cats may develop azotemia, lethargy, hypokalemia, reflex tachycardia, and weight loss. In humans taking amlodipine, headache and peripheral edema are the most common adverse effects.
