I am sure that you must have been given this diagnosis after thorough evaluation.To put in simple terms ,you are having CKD-Hypertension.
You need to take the drugs which adequately control BP,are renoprotective & devoid of side-effects as much as possible.I would therefore like to alter your prescription as under-
1.Change over Cardace H to Telma 40 mg BD
2.Change over Cilacar to tab Aldactone 25 mg OD
3.Tab Amdip 10 mg OD
4.Stop Moxavas
5.Titrate doses to attain target BP - _6.Most important will be restrict Salt intake to 4 gm daily & fluid intake to around 2.5 lit daily
I feel all these measures shall be able to both adequately control BP & take care of other symptoms you have.
Best of luck
