I am under a doctor care for the above conditions; but the medication seems to be causing side effects that i do not tolerate well

Amlodipine can cause dizziness and Simvastatin can cause tiredness and memory loss as side effects. You didn’t tell me for how long you've been taking these medicines and when these symptoms occurred so I can’t be sure if your symptoms are due to the medicines you take or to something else. Anyway, there are many other medications for high blood pressure and high cholesterol that you can try.

You should consult your primary health provider about your symptoms and other medical options.
