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?

I have been on Vivitrol since 10/2012, on Lasix since 4/2013
My hip and leg pain is worsening and my daily life is effected by this pain. I walk differently d/t the pain, I can't exercise without pain. Is it due to the monthly Injections of Vivitrol that they alternate Right/Left in my back side. Not sure what the long term effects of Vivitrol are, but I certainly have become more debilitated since I statred recieving these injections
