1) My wife and I both now use Amlodipine tablets to control blood pressure (she got hers today). Mine says Amlodipine Besilate and hers is Amlodipine Camsylate. What's the difference? 2) Also I read that the Camsylate was pulled from the market. Should she still use it? 3) Both are 5mg tablets, but hers says 50mg/5mg and mine just 5mg. What does that mean? 4) Maybe this question will be answered after seeing the other 3 answers, but can we use each others medicine?
We live in the Philippines. She is 64 years old, I am 56.
Thank you for the response. Normally I would never use another person's medication, but if it's the same medication with the same mg, then I do not see a problem. In this case I would not though because there is a slight difference and I will not take a chance on that. I'll do some further checking on the "ETHEX" and see. I don't think the pharmacist here would know much about it, but I can give that a try. I joined this community and have it bookmarked, so I'll put in here what I find out.View Thread
