I assume your blood pressure medication is diltiazem?

Yes, there is a moderate drug interaction.
See: http://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=890-0,925-492

Your prescriber should be aware of the potential for diltiazem to increase the blood levels of Tikosyn, which could result in arryhthmia and cardiac arrest.
The dose of Tikosyn may need to be reduced.
