Which medicine best for BP

Hi,
I have been having the Losartan Potasium tablets since 1 year as I had high BP( 170/100). Now how ever my BP never reached to that range since I have been having that but though I continued having Losar 50 mg, my BP is still reaching 140/90. When recently been to a Doctor she adviced me to have amlodipine tablets 2.5 mg with Losartan. What are the Amlodipine tablets? Will there be any side effect. I am 33 yrs old. Please suggest if it is fine to have these tablets at the age 33.

While some specific patients may benefit from using a particular class of high blood pressure medicine, there is no single recommendation on which drug should be "the best"
