There are a variety of blood pressure pills and interactions are specific. Interactions between amoxicillin and antihypertensive are not common otherwise, confirm with pharmacist when picking up prescription.

It is unlikely that you will have any adverse reaction between the two medications. But you should always check with your doctor to see if the two are compatible.
