Once I stopped taking it, I am back to constant pain, confusion, "noise", and fatigue. I'd rather have the swelling and little headache, but am not sure that's safe or advisable. Is there a similar med?

Not sure, from what you have said, why you are taking the cyproheptadine which is an antihistamine. Without knowing why you are taking this medication it is difficult to make any suggestions as to other medicines to try. Foot and leg swelling does not appear to be a common side effect of the cyproheptadine. For a list of other antihistamines please go to:
You will note that cyproheptadine (Periactin) is on the list. Whether any of the other medications would be appropriate for your condition, please consult your doctor.
