Brief Answer:
Yes it can cause hypertension

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Alcohol itself can cause high blood pressure. When we are taking amoxicillin, it means that an infection is there. Infection can cause raised blood pressure. Amoxicillin can also worsen the blood pressure in the above scenario.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
