Thanks for your query.

The initial medicine you were on was Nebi-5 is a selective beta 1 blocker.

Now recently, you have been shifted to S-numlo -5 mg. This is a drug belonging to different group called calcium channel blockers.

Yes, this class of drugs do have a well documented side effect, that is swelling(edema) of the feet and ankles. So do not worry, it will gradually resolve over a period of one or two more weeks.

If it does not resolve by then or if it is very obvious and severe, I suggest you consult your treating physician for a change of medicines.

Hope you are taking your thyroid medicines regularly along with this medicines.

Hope I have answered your query completely. Please revert back if you have additional concerns.

Wishing you good health.
