Full Prescribing Info
Special Precautions
Use in Patients with Heart Failure: In a long-term, placebo controlled study (PRAISE-2) of amlodipine in patients with NYHA III and IV heart failure of nonischemic etiology, amlodipine was associated with increased reports of pulmonary edema despite no significant difference in the incidence of worsening heart failure as compared to placebo.
Use in Patients with Impaired Hepatic Function: As with all calcium antagonists, amlodipine half-life is prolonged in patients with impaired liver function and dosage recommendations have not been established in these patients. The drug should therefore be administered with caution in these patients.
Use in Pregnancy & Lactation: Safety of amlodipine in human pregnancy or lactation has not been established. Amlodipine does not demonstrate toxicity in animal reproductive studies other than to delay parturition and prolong labor in rats at a dose level fifty times the maximum recommended dose in humans. Accordingly, use in pregnancy is only recommended when there is no safer alternative and when the disease itself carries greater risk for the mother and fetus.
