Brief Answer:
If you are on regular medicines for high blood pressure, you will be fine.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thank you for posting your query.

Do not worry, you will be fine.

I suppose you regularly take Amlodipine 10 mg for your high blood pressure, in which case one additional pill is not going to cause much trouble.

You will be fine while you sleep, you need not worry.

Make sure you stick to the dose prescribed by your doctor in future.

Do write back to me if you have any doubts.

Wishing you good health.

Warm regards.
