Amlodipine (brand names: Norvasc®, Amodip®, Copalia®, Katerzia®) is a calcium channel blocker used for treating high blood pressure, most commonly in cats, in order to prevent damage to the kidneys, eyes, and brain.
Its use in cats to treat high blood pressure is ‘off label’ or ‘extra label’. Many drugs are commonly prescribed for off label use in veterinary medicine. In these instances, follow your veterinarian’s directions and cautions very carefully as their directions may be significantly different from those on the label.
How is amlodipine given?
Amlodipine is given by mouth in the form of a tablet or compounded liquid solution. It may be given with or without food, however if vomiting occurs when dosed on an empty stomach, give future doses with food. Measure liquid forms carefully. It is important to not miss or skip doses; do not stop this medication before talking to your veterinarian.
This medication should take effect within 1 to 2 hours; however, effects may not be visibly obvious and therefore laboratory tests may need to be done to evaluate this medication’s effectiveness.
What if I miss giving my pet the medication?
Give the missed dose as soon as you remember, and then wait the recommended amount of time between doses. Never give your pet two doses at once or give extra doses.
Oral use. Amodip/Amlodipine tablets should be administered orally with or without food at a recommended starting dose of 0.125 - 0.25 mg/kg.
