I have been taking cozaar (losartan) (generic form) 50mg 2x day for several years and the doctor also added amlodipine besylate 5mg 1x daily. Is the combination?

In brief: Yes combination safe

Do you mean is combination safe? Yes.
Cozaar (losartan) is an arb- working in your kidneys to keep blood pressure under control (and protect your kidneys) and the amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker, which works on your blood vessels and heart to control blood pressure and reduce cardiac workload. They work compatably to keep blood pressure under control.
