I recently was prescribed some medications for high BP. After a while, a few weeks, my cardiologist changed my meds due to continued high BP. After starting these drugs, I developed a rash indicative of a possible allergic reaction. I also experienced a rapid weight gain of almost 20 lbs, and swelling in my knees ,thighs and scotum. I reported this to my Doc and we set up an office visit. He took me off the drugs with the exception of Lasix and low dose aspirin. I ve since lost 10 lbs and the rash is improving but I still feel some swelling. I felt much better prior to starting the meds. I plan to see my Internist as soon as I can get in. I m 64 work out daily.
