Hi,
How is your father?  The headache and dizziness may be caused by medicine side effect. Aside from headache and dizziness, amlodipine side effects may also include swelling of the lower extremities, flushing, fatigue, nausea, and palpitations. (ref: http://www.medicinenet.com/amlodipine/article.htm)  If these persist, you may need to inform his doctor for proper management. A change in medication or dosage may be indicated.   Take care and do keep us posted.
