For reasons that remain somewhat mysterious to us, amlodipine (Norvasc) is one of the most popular blood pressure medications in the pharmacy. This calcium channel blocker lowers blood pressure in part by interfering with the flow of calcium into artery walls. This helps dilate blood vessels in the heart and throughout the body.

Amlodipine is perceived by many health professionals as a highly effective, low-risk medication. At last count, nearly 16 million Americans swallow a pill containing amlodipine every day.
