Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thank you for the information.I understand your concern and I am sorry for your symptoms.From what you describe I feel that this could be an idiosyncratic reaction to AmlodipineAn idiosyncratic drug reaction can be an adverse effect without any specific known mechanism or explanation based on the action of the particular medication. It can occur at any dose and it is highly unpredictable. It can occur if specific drug has been used previously without any side effects also. Even the clinical side effects are highly unpredictable and variable.If there is a specific temporal relationship with any particular drug like what has happened here, it has to be suspected.The best way is to to stop the drug immediately.If any particular drug has to be taken, then depending upon the risk benefit ratio it is better to take it under appropriate medical guidance and supervision.Meanwhile I suggest that you keep yourself well hydrated so that the drug is out of the system soon.
I suggest you use zinc supplements (elemental zinc 20 - 50 mg once daily for 14 days) & ORS (Each small packet mixed in 200ml of potable water and keep giving sip by sip) as hydration is very important and crucial part of treatment. If there is vomiting you can use tablet Ondansetron (as prescribed by your physician).Regarding diet - Avoid fruit juices as they might aggravate diarrhea.But you can take fruits as such as they contain fibre and help in formed stools. You can take zinc supplements & ORS apart from normal vegetarian porridges & soups.Most crucial part is keeping yourself well hydrated. Make sure you pass urine at least 6th hourly once.
