Taking preterax amlodipine for high blood pressure. Is it safe?

My fiance just told me he is taking Preterax Amlodipine for high blood pressure . I knew his pressure was high and he tells me not to worry but should I? He travels all over the world for his work and can t seem to slow down. I don t want him to know how scared I am but I also don t want to worry myself into HBP... ps: We are African American Today his three readings were: 150/100 (this am) 138/98 (this afternoon) 143/107 (this evening) And, he s 39 years-old

It seems to me that his medication is keeping his BP under control well enough for a 39 yr old
