Does taking Metoprolol, Losartan and Amlodipine together cause headaches?

I am taking a combination of several drugs to treat high blood pressure, and I just started taking metoprolol, in addition to losartan and amlodipine. My blood pressure keeps on going up, and now I am experiencing head aches. My doctor has set me up for a CAT scan, but could the above medicine be causing the headaches? YYYY@YYYY

My heart doctor just prescribed losartan 25 mg to take once a day same as these other medications. Is it safe to take this losartan with these other medications?

I have been very depressed since my brother s sudden death this summer... When I stopped taking Celexa which I had been on for year went directly to Cymbalta I had two days of clarity (I relaxed when I slept and felt like I did 25+ years ago, tension left my body and I woke more rested)... after two days it went away.... I tried wellbutrin which made my mind hyper active when I tried to sleep (I take Lunesta 3mg at night to shut my mind off)... My blood pressure has been high even with three meds (lusartan, metoprolol and amlodipine)... I m on Viibryd now and it seems to depress me even more... any ideas... suggestions... I did drugs in my20s now I m 30 years clean but I could sure use a qualuude and cocaine right now to mellow me out... Mike
