Brief Answer:
Find the cause and treat the same . Details as below

Detailed Answer:
Hello ,
I am Dr. Mody and I would be addressing your concern .
Of all the medication you have mentioned , the only one which can cause some degree of leg swelling is clinidipine component of cetenil.
However the extent of swelling you describe is generally not seen just due to medication use .
I would strongly suggest that you see your doctor and get at least an echo cardiology done to rule out heart as the cause of this limb swelling , other reasons why ut may happen commonly is decreased hemoglobin, low proteins particularly albumin, hypothyroidism and renal dysfunction .
CBC , Renal Function Test , S. albumin and S. Tsh along with evaluation of heart pumping by 2d echo would complete the basic workup
So investigating the above parameters and treating the cause should be the best way forward.

You may upload the investigation and more details about clinical history so I can guide you better .
Regards Dr. Mody

Looking at the side effect of this drug-Telmisartan 40, 80 mg etc , why is it prescribed to the patients suffering with Hypertension and kedney disease together? and what does it do to reduce the hypertension, if the side effects are palpitation, increased heart rate, chest pain, abnormal ECG-- tachycardia and bradycardia (fast or slow heartbeat), hypotension (low blood pressure), edema (swelling of arms, legs, lips, tongue, or throat, the latter leading to breathing problems), and allergic reactions etc.? Why should one suffering from both the hypertension and kedney failure, CKD or renal dysfunction be subjected to Telma 40- Telmisartan drug?

My Creatinine levels are elevating each time I have blood work done (6 months) I am 75 and exercise and try to eat lots of protein and drink water. Is there a possible medication that I am taking that could cause this to develop. I am on Triamterene/Hctz Tab 37.5/25 and until I started taking them did not have an issue with creatinine levels.
