HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your father, your father is taking anti-hypertensive medicine and he has swelling over his ankles and feet, this swelling may not be due to the drug "Stemlo" that he is taking but the clinical condition it self may be responsible for this, the cardiac status need to be evaluated, the level of Hemoglobin need to be tested, the reason for swelling is not the drug, hope this information helps you, have nice day.

I am 46 years old and had a partial hysterectomy at 33 years. I have had 6 pelvic surgeries after the birth of my only child. Currently I am on 200 mg bio identical HRT Progestrone and are taking 100mg of DIM to remove oestrogen dominance. I am on 20 mg of Prozac and take magnesium Malate Chelate and Vitamin B complex( to help with fibromyalgia). I am going through perimenopause and have noticed over the last few months that my urine smell has changed from occasionally a sweet smell to now a consistent foul stench. Is this perimenopause or Prozac? I am in no pain, although I have had bladder problems for many years due to adhesions and position of bladder from prolapsed and surgery. Why does my urine smell horrendous and offensive?
