For the past month my mom has been taking Azor 5/40 Mg tablets once daily and 5 mg of Norvasc at night. Both lower legs from the ankles up to the upper calf area are swollen and tender. Her doctor thought it could be related to her severe RA and just inflammatory and not related to the medication. I'm not convinced, since the swelling started a few days after starting Azor. She had ankle swelling in the past due to the RA, but not like this. Can Azor and/or Norvasc cause fluid retention? She's had so many changes recently with her BP meds, I hate to see her change again, especially since the Azor helped lower her BP, but she can't tolerate the swelling in her legs and the inability to stand for any length of time. Any information or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
