Hi.. Since how long have u been using these drugs? do u take any other medicines? Eptoin and gardenal per se do not cause leg swelling. It could be due to variety of other reasons.. When was the last time u got a general check up done? My advise is get a check on heart and kidney functions. Do find out when is the swelling most? IN the morning as soon as u get up from bed or in the evening?

Thanks a lot for using healthcaremagic. Per se Eptoin and Gardenal does not cause swelling and redness in the legs. Consult a dermatologist to see if dermatitis or drug reaction possibility.
