My doctor prescribed me Avalide w/ hydochlorothizide 300/12.5 mg. I haven't taken in about two 2 weeks. A friend of mine take clonidine 0.1mg and offered me several until I can get to a doctor. I do not know how soon it will before i can go becasue I have no insurance and I am not working? The medicine is very expensive. I need to take something my legs, ankles, hand, and face is swollen and my doctor do not have an samples. I am also short of breath. Please tell me if it is okay for me to take them. I dont usually take other people medicine. I need somthing right away!
