What are you taking that is making you swell up? The water pill will help get rid of water, but there could be a drug that you are taking that makes the body work against itself. My mom would swell up so bad on Actos. Once she went off it, no more edema. She had it so bad she has to use a cream on her ankles because her skin was so delicate.

I went to my Medical Dr. & she up my fluid pills to 40 mg for 3 days then rest of the back to 20mg. she said this should get rid of the swelling. Tinkerbell54
