Brief Answer:
Continue with the treatment prescribed.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

After going through your medical details I understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that for swollen legs continue with the current treatment for more couple of days and if even after that your swelling doesn’t go away then you have to reconsult your cardiologist for dose adjustments.

Also get your serum electrolytes done as diuretics are known to cause electrolyte imbalance in the body.

Hopefully this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards,
