... In the past couple of days I have developed swollen feet and legs. Apparently, I have collected water in my lungs as well. In response to my problem, my doctor told me to take only one pill instead of two, and maybe at a later date he will prescribe a medication to deal with my tendency to retain water on Korlym. Has anyone who is also taking Korlym had a similar experience?
