To rule out possibility of venous insufficiency
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
It would be more helpful if you could provide the following additional information as it would be helpful to me to guide you further.
1. Is the swelling present in both the limbs
2. Is there any discolouration of overlying skin like any redness
3. Does the swelling reduce after taking over night rest ?
4. Do you have any other medical history?
Amlodepine which is a calcium channel blocker
antihypertensive is known to cause ankle oedema, but the severity of oedema or swelling is not severe enough to involve the thigh. Maxide is a Potassium sparing diuretic
which should reduce the swelling.
From your history given so far it does not appear to be due to the drugs you are taking.
I would suspect the following as the cause of oedema
1. Chronic venous in
Further diagnosis will depend on the clinical examination of the limb. It would be helpful if you could provide clinical photograph of the same for further assessment.
Waiting for your reply.
