Yes, however...: Yes, in fact it is wise to take a multivitamin if you have high blood pressure. While centrum is popular there are many better choices out there. I dislike centrum because it has toxic additives and many of its nutrients are in poorly-absorbed forms. See http://www.Multivitaminguide.Org/ for independent ratings of 101 different multivits- centrum was rated 54th- choose one in the top 30!

I'm actually surprised Centrum was rated so high. For an essay I wrote discussing the problems I see with Centrum see http://drrandybaker.com/2012/11/11/vitamins-really-do-prevent-heart-disease-beware-of-bad-studies/

None needed: You don't need any vitamins specifically because you are taking Caduet or either of it's ingredients.
