What is the equivalent dose of cilnidipine compared to amlodipine???

Some references said that cilnidipine 10 mg is equivalent to amlodipine 5 mg tablet. Is there any article/journal regarding this dose??

Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums.  Do you have a pharmacy you go to regularly?  The pharmacist there would be excellent to ask this question to or the doctor who prescribes the medication for you.  In general, 10 mg is the starting dose of cilnidipine and 5 mg is the starting dose of amlodipine.  So, those are the initial starting doses and why they'd be said to be 'comparable'.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4397623/
