High BP. On perindopril, amlodipine, bendroflumethiazide. Continue?

I am prescribed before for perindopril 4 mg combination with amlodipine 5 mg, for two yrs, last month my blood pressure was high , so they increase my perindopril to 8 mg with amlodipine, but as I observe although my bp settled a bit but still diastolic of above 90, went to Gp , prescribed me to start bendroflumethiazide 2.5 mg with 8 mg perindopril ,then stop my amlodipine , actually I was prescribed this bendroflumethiazide alone, with no other combination of 5 yrs ago, they only stop it because my potassium was below normal, so it it ok to take this perindopril with bendroflumethiazide? I'm worried coz of my potassium again, thanks...

perindopril should have been incresed to 8mg after a month of starting to give good result along with amlodipine.
As of now the combination can still be continued and it may take over a month to control with new dosage, and if diastolic remains above 90 then bendroflumethazide may be added safely under cover of pottasium supplements(PoTKLOR),but first wait for perindopril and amlodipine response for 6 weeks
