Dose increased to 10mg last week. Acute onset of lower leg and ankle swelling last nite. Also take Lasix daily so it scared me. Almost went to ER. Doc says to cut back to orig 5mg dose that I was on for months. Still puffy today despite laying with legs elevated. Would walking some be helpful? Is that type edema dangerous or just painful and annoying? Am scared to take med again.
Its just annoying. My dr tried stopping my water pill at the same time she increased my norvasc. I gained 8 pounds in water that week. I started it again and told her. How much lasix are you taking? Walking isn't going to help, keeping your legs elevated will help. Like in a lounge chair with the legs way up laying back. Sitting in a regular chair and putting your feet on an ottoman doesn't work as well, because you are bending at the hip.
