An Introduction to Amturnide Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Amturnide® (aliskiren-amlodipine-hydrochlorothiazide) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.

Common Side Effects of Amturnide

Amturnide has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking the drug were documented and compared to those that occurred in another group of people taking other blood pressure medications.

  • Swelling or water retention of the hands, ankles, lower legs, or feet -- in up to 7.1 percent of people
