Hi, welcome to health care magic
Nebilong AM 5 is a combination of amlodipine and nebivolol. Nebivolol is similiar to concor, it acts in a similiar mechanism to reduce blood pressure.
So you can either take the medications separately as amlodipine and concor or take one tablet (nebilong) with both of them combined (with the concor substitued for by the nebivolol)

Blood pressure is also affected by our diet, so it is advised to reduce salt intake, use low fat milk and cheese, reduce alcohol intake, use at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
Exercise is also important and it is recommened to have at least 150 mins of physical activity a week.

If you are using your medication consistently and employing lifestyle measures and it is not controlled then your doctor may consider adding or changing the medication.

I hope this helps
