Welcome to HCM,

You are Hypertensive and controlled on drugs,as you are taking Stamlo for last 3 years,it is possible the dug Amlodipine is causing swelling in limbs, your new drug is combination of Telmisartan and and diuretic Chlorthalidon which will help to get rid of swelling and also control your blood pressure.

Please take less salt
Your swelling will disappear in week time.
Please have faith in your treating doctor.

Take care

Good Luck.

Thanks for your query.

Your blood pressure is still high inspite of taking Nuril & Stamlo since last 3 years. Also you are having edema feet which is side effect of Stamlo , so your doctor has changed your medicines. Eritel CH contain Telmisartan & Chlorthalidone which will help to decrease your swelling on your feet & also keep your blood pressure in control. Side effects can be dizziness, back pain, diarrhoea. But this side effects are rare. Your doctor has started right medicine.So dont worry.
Take care.
