As you have told that you are taking sitagliptin+metformin for diabetes and olmesartan+amlodipine for blood pressure

Both these drugs donot interact with each other and they are perfectly safe when used together

Dont worry , your blood pressure will remain normal , with combined use of these medicines

Hope this helps

Take care
