Smile Cardizem & swollen feet

I was on Norvasc once and my right foot was extremely swollen. My Cardiac Surgeon just said, " i will go down in time." Well great how am I suppose to get my shoes on in mean time. Well he was right it did stop in time but it was a while.
Now they have put me on Cardizem 180mg, 1 in AM & 1 in PM and my feet are swelling. I have been on 180mg once a day for about two wkis. but have very erratic B/P and was already on Cozaar 100mg once a day.I took a Lasix yesterday, which did not help much. So I don't know if it is the increase in Cardizem or what.
I drank tea yesterday also to help with diuretic. Will cut way back on salt. Can't use the fake salt because of the potassium in the Cozaar.
Good Luck.
