Hi,thanks for query.You need to take care as you are too young.Please get your self properly examined by doctor including some blood test for kidney etc.You should also go for renal Doppler study,this can diagnose some kidney problem in case if you have.Both the drugs you are talking about are of same class.You can take either of them,both are safe and effective.Please avoid stress,do regular exercise and plan your diet well to avoid complications at younger age.bye.
