Daily Life Interactions for Amlodipine Besylate/Atorvastatin Calcium 10mg-10mg Tablet

Elements of your daily lifestyle may have an effect on the medications you are taking. Drug interactions can result in unwanted side effects, reduce the effectiveness of your medicine or possibly increase the action of a particular medicine.

Major Lifestyle Interaction
Grapefruit juice and Amlodipine Besylate/Atorvastatin Calcium 10mg-10mg Tablet(Atorvastatin Calcium)
Grapefruit juice and Atorvastatin(Atorvastatin Calcium)
Side effects from Atorvastatin may get worse if you drink grapefruit juice. Do not take Atorvastatin with grapefruit juice. Discuss with your health care provider why Atorvastatin and grapefruit juice should not be taken together. Orange juice is safe to drink with Atorvastatin. Contact your prescriber immediately if you experience unexplained muscle aches, muscle pain or tenderness, general weakness or fatigue, side or back pain, or decreased urination while taking Atorvastatin.
Moderate Lifestyle Interaction
Alcohol and Amlodipine Besylate/Atorvastatin Calcium 10mg-10mg Tablet(Amlodipine Besylate)
Alcohol and Antihypertensives(Amlodipine Besylate)
Although an interaction is possible, Ethanol (alchohol) and Antihypertensive Agents (drugs used to reduce high blood pressure) may be used together. Ethanol or alchohol-containing beverages may increase the effects of Antihypertensive Agents on your blood pressure. If the blood pressure drops too low while taking Ethanol and Antihypertensive Agents, you may become dizzy or feel faint. To limit this interaction, avoid alcohol-containing beverages while taking medicines to lower your blood pressure. Do not stand or sit up too quickly. Contact your prescriber if you have dizziness which does not go away.
