OK, for your case, you do not need to take medicines at this time. Please make your blood pressure always in the normal range. Otherwise your GFR will be less and less as the high blood pressure will injure the blood vessels throughout the whole body. Meanwhile, please give up smoking and drinking which can easily induce kidney damage. Also, the renal diets and healthy living style must be followed.

As a matter of fact, you need to take the test regularly and avoid infection or cold. Please be careful for the medicines you need to take, you had better have the medicines under the guidance of a doctor.
