puffiness with HP meds

Can azor couse puffiness in my fingers? I feel like I have sausage fingers. lol I do take a water pill 12.5. I would think that would get rid of any extra water retension.

I see my doc next week or the week after, I forget. but it's been driving me nutty.

Re: puffiness with HP meds

Do you have any other symptoms? What is the other name for azor? I can't find it in my drug book.

I got sauage fingers from Cozaar. It was called a drug-induced Lupus reaction. There are a number of b/p meds & other drugs that can cause this reaction.

It took forever for the fluid to leave & some of it never did. I don't think a diuretic will help.

You should call you Dr. right away & not wait for your appointment. You may not have this type of reaction but if you do you could have the serious damage to your body. Fam

Other symptoms: wrist,shoulder, knee & pain. I have permanent damage to my knees now & can't walk without wearing ace type elastic bandages. My blood count dropped (hemoglobin.) I was on it for 13 days. Next time, show him your fingers. Fam
