Calcium channel blockers are commonly used in various cardiovascular diseases, but its poisoning may lead to fatal outcomes.
We report a case of alleged poisoning of amlodipine in a 25-year-old female who consumed 20 tablets of 5 mg amlodipine. She
presented with cardiogenic shock, hypoglycemia, hypokalemia, constipation, and central nervous system symptoms which were
managed with intravenous crystalloids, calcium gluconate, 5% dextrose, dopamine, and noradrenaline infusion after which patient
responded well and discharged.
