In brief: Should not need both
The drugs work on parallel pathways but different mechanisms.
You should not be on both drugs for most conditions except in specific instances such as if your doctor is a renal specialist. The risk is that the two drugs t higher doses can compromise kidney function or raise potassium levels dangerously.
