Things You'll Need
- Physician's approval
- Alternative plan to discontinue Norvasc
Place a call to your physician's office to let him know that you wish to change medications or discontinue your treatment with Norvasc.
Make a list of other conditions you suffer from as well as all the drugs you are taking, and any side effects with Norvasc you've been having and share this information with your doctor.
Be sure to keep taking Norvasc until your doctor approves discontinuing treatment. Norvasc may require a lowering of dosage (weening off), so your doctor may prescribe a lower dose for you to take while you are planning to discontinue Norvasc use.
Ask your doctor about DynaCircCR and other alternative treatments to Norvasc.
