Side Effects of Norvasc

As with any medicine, side effects can occur with Norvasc. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well.

Common side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Swelling or water retention (edema)
  • Feelings of a rapidly or forcefully beating heart (heart palpitations)
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Flushing (redness of the skin, especially the face)
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Drowsiness.
