I was put on this medication & an antibiotic for severe pitted edema . The fluid started going down slowly . It did go down some but a few days after the antibiotic dosage was completed the fluid started building back up again. It was totally ineffective with my high blood pressure. It reamaind high . I am going to go back to the Dr. tomorrow morning after 5 weeks to see what she will try.
