Diuretics: You can use hydrochlorthiazide (hctz (hydrochlorothiazide)) if your kidney function is good enough. Ptatients with glomerular filtration rates of 50 ml/ min or less need loop diuretics, furosemide, to effect a diuresis, as hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) will not work well.

Blurry vision, drug: Effects of blood pressure drugs can affect the eyes, but the ones you are on are probably due to the positional change on your blood pressure such as a feeling of lightheaded upon standing. These are usually short term but report to your prescribing doctor asa dose adjustment might be needed.

Yes, It's Common: Amlodipine can cause reduced saliva and dry mouth. Both can lead to thicker saliva and a tickle in the throat with chronic coughing. Stay well hydrated, which can reduce these symptoms, but may cause more frequent urination.
