Calcium channel blockers have also been considered for male birth control and can have adverse effects on the male anatomy. Too bad they are also extremely effective on blood pressure especially when nothing else works.
Cardiologist had me on Norvasc and ten other meds after a heart attack in Oct. 2012. Norvasc made me feel like crap. Legs felt like they weighed a ton, light headed, and no energy. I was having panic attacks too, but not sure it was related to the Norvasc. Threw them in the garbage along with the Coreg he prescribed. Have been holding off on taking Lipitor for the last couple of weeks.
Some days are still a struggle, but feel much better without them.
