ANTIETAM (2 years ago):

Severe ankle swelling by evening despite 60
MG of Furo per day. Stopped taking w/o informing my Dr. Now ankle swelling is almost zero. Top blood pressure is 145, up from 125, but bottom is still in low 70s. No doubt that Furo caused ankle swelling. Any one else have this experience?
