To clarify, I've gotten off of all blood pressure meds with the triamterene-hctz being the last of them. Blood pressure is fine, but I now have edema in my hands, feet and ankles. How long will it take for the edema to go away?
Your high blood pressure is not cured but with the diuretic your BP is under control but you my have it changed but you won't stop. The hctz stands for hydrochlorothiazide which is a diuretic and the triamterene is your blood pressure medication. Some call it a super drug but it is a dual dose medication in one pill. Your high BP isn't gone but being treated in the same pill. Sorry.

Mcdanieg, I am also suffering from edema in my hands and feet after discontinuing all bp meds. I am no longer taking lisinopril or hctz. I stopped all meds 8 weeks ago and bp is normal. But the edema is still horrible. How long did it take you to get rid of your edema? I’m hoping it fixes itself soon! I’m also up 8-10 pounds!
