Suggestions for correct medicines

Patient

Q: A 48 year old male takes TRIAM-HCTZ 37.5/25mg (triamterene-dyazide) for high blood pressure top number runs 150 to 158 and bottom number 84 to 95. Also was given Naproyn/Naproxen 500mg 1 table twice a day totaling 1000mg over a long period time for hurt shoulder. Works out everyday lifting legs, arms, back, stomach and runs. By mixing these medcines does it raise the blood pressure higher or interact with each other? Are you or can you have a stroke or heart attack? What blood pressure medicine would work better for weight 230 and height 6'2inches. He got sick they said he had food poisoning was treating him on a "Brad diet" for 15 days and would take about 10 days to mobility and strength back. Something wasn't right so; finally they did a CT scan and MRI done. It showed Ischemic/Hemorrhagic stroke right cerebellum 75% vessel vein blocked. On Tuesday said his bad cholesterol is 114 needs to be 70 and prescribed Lipitor 40mg and Amlodipine 5mg. What medicines should he be taking to get him back on track with the blood pressure and good health? They also took him off Naprosyn/Naproxen after the results Ischemic/Hemorrhagic stroke and added vitamin D. Can you suggest what of blood pressure medicine will keep him level with the numbers running high and an inflammatory medicine will not raise the blood pressure when needed and not interact with each other? The family wants to get him healthy with the right medicines and another opinion or suggestion that we can offer. Thank you for your time and expertise......
