Yes, you can take both medicines at the same time. The best time is in the morning just after breakfast.

It is worth mentioning that taking your combination of drugs puts you at risk of developing hypokalemia (low potassium levels).
See your doctor if you experience symptoms of hypokalemia such as weakness, lethargy, and muscle pains or cramps.
