... doc prescribed norvasc which has been fine side effect and result wise except: the norvasc has given me fairly severe edema in my ankles and feet. It wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I wear a very rigid brace that goes from the top of my calf and encompasses my foot and the edema is causing the brace to not fit properly. I can't walk w/out the brace so not wearing it isn't an option and as it's custom made and funding for new ones is limited to once a year, I can't just go out and get a new one. My question is: has anyone any suggestions about high b.p. meds that don't cause so much swelling? I see my doc on Fri. and so want to have some ideas before I see him.
Thanks much in advance, Ade
