Calcium Chanel Blocker

I have been prescribed generic Norvasc 2.5mg once per day to treat my mildly elevated blood pressure (135/98 on average), raynauds and migraines. I know this medication includes a diuretic. I am just wondering if there is any other medication that would treat these three disorders that do not include a diuretic (tired of going to the bathroom all the time!)? Your help is appreciated!

Norvasc is Amlodipine (a calcium channel blocker) and  does not include a diuretic
