Muscle is ultimately composed of protein filaments. These filaments are arranged in parallel in an overlapping fashion. When muscles contract, the fibers are able to slide across one another shortening the over-all length to up to one third of the original length.

Muscle contraction is made possible by the release of calcium from storage within the muscle cell (in a structure called the “sarcoplasmic reticulum.” Nerve stimulation causes the release of calcium which allows muscle contraction to happen. No calcium, no muscle contraction.

There are three types of muscle within the body: skeletal muscle (the muscles under voluntary control which we use to move), smooth muscle (the involuntary muscle which provides muscle tone in our intestines, blood vessels, and other structures we do not consciously control), and heart muscle (which has some characteristics of both the other two types). The heart must pump against the muscle tone of the arteries and must work harder if there is high pressure in the arteries. In the control of hypertension, the goal is the reduction of blood pressure. We would like to relax the muscle tone in the arteries that carry blood to our tissues. Relaxing arterial muscle serves to dilate the artery which, in turn, lowers blood pressure (similar to the way water pressure would be reduced by running the same amount of water through a much larger diameter pipe).

Amlodipine besylate is what is called a “calcium channel blocker.” These drugs work by blocking the calcium needed for muscle contraction in either primarily heart muscle or primarily arterial muscle. Amlodipine besylate is one of the calcium channel blockers that works primarily on arterial muscle. Its overall effect is to relax the arterial muscles so that they dilate and the blood pressure within them drops.

Hypertension is an important problem in both people and pets. Amlodipine besylate has become the most popular blood pressure medication for hypertensive cats. It has not worked well in dogs.

Amlodipine besylate is used to treat high blood pressure in the cat. High blood pressure is a common consequence of numerous conditions including kidney failure, hyperthyroidism, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and more. For more information on hypertension in pets click here.

Treatment for hypertension should be considered when a cat’s systolic blood pressure exceeds 160 mmHg. Blood pressures over 180 mmHg are considered high risk for causing organ damage.

Amlodipine besylate may be given with or without food. Its peak activity occurs approximately 6-9 hours after oral administration in humans (feline data not available). Amlodipine besylate is generally given once a day in the cat. Expect your veterinarian to recommend periodic rechecks to measure blood pressure and evaluate the retinas of signs of bleeding.

In humans, 7.3% of people taking this drug report headache which makes headache the most common side effect of amlodipine besylate. Of course, we do not have a good way of detecting headache in our pets.

Infrequent side effects reported in cats include elevations in renal blood parameters, drop in blood potassium levels, lethargy, increase in heart rate, and weight loss.

Gingival hyperplasia is a condition where the gums of the mouth overgrow creating extra space for periodontal bacteria and infection. This side effect has been reported in 8.5% of dogs on amlodipine. The condition, when it occurs, resolves within 6 months of discontinuation of the drug.

Hypotension (blood pressure dropping too low) generally does not occur with amlodipine besylate unless it is combined with another drug that drops blood pressure. Other drugs of this type might include: fentanyl, diuretics such as furosemide, ACE inhibitors such as enalapril, or beta-blockers such as propranolol.

Missing even one dose can lead to a significant rise in blood pressure and a return of clinical symptoms of high blood pressure.

  • Patients with liver disease remove this drug from their systems very slowly thus necessitating modification of the dosing regimen.
  • Amlodipine besylate should not be used in pregnancy.
  • Amlodipine besylate has some (usually insignificant) effects on the heart. It will slightly reduce the strength of contraction. This could be significant in patients with a history of heart failure and the drug should be used with caution in this situation.
  • The doses of amlodipine besylate for cats are very small (usually quarter tablets) and it is difficult to cut tablets in appropriate sizes.

  • A pill cutter can be purchased to assist in accurately cutting pills
    or a compounding pharmacy can be used to formulate custom-made capsules or flavored liquid.
