Were you looking for information about Norvasc? Norvase is a common misspelling of Norvasc.
Norvasc® (amlodipine besylate) is a prescription medication approved to treat several heart and blood vessel conditions, including high blood pressure and heart disease. The drug is a form of calcium channel blocker that helps slow down the rate of calcium movement to your heart and blood vessel walls, which relaxes the vessels and improves blood flow. Side effects of Norvasc may include fatigue, nausea, and dizziness. In order for Norvasc to work properly, you must take it as prescribed. Typically, Norvasc is taken by mouth once a day. If you do not take your Norvasc as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not double your dose of Norvasc.
