Special Precautions
Symptomatic hypotension may occur in patients receiving amlodipine, particularly in individuals with severe aortic stenosis; however, acute hypotension is unlikely because of the gradual onset of action of the drug.
Worsening of angina or acute myocardial infarction can occur, particularly in patients with severe obstructive coronary artery disease, upon initiaton of amlodipine therapy or an increase in amlodipine dosage.
Use with caution in patients with hepatic impairment, amlodipine clearance is decreased and AUC is increased by about 40-60%. A reduced initial dosage of the drug is recommended, and subsequent dosage should be titrated slowly.
