Emery on Feb, 15, 2014:
For the past few months my life is made miserable by restless leg syndrome which occurs every evening when I sit down to read and watch TV. It seems to have started about the time I began taking Cozaar for a bout of high blood pressure. Does anyone know of a connection of this medication with RLS? I am taking Requip as well as iron and magnesium tablets, but still have the RLS (and arms sometimes) EVERY night!
Have daily restless legs (and sometimes my arms) when I sit down in comfortable recliner to watch evening news. Will usually last for hours until I take at least two Requip tablets or stand up, walk around, etc. Can't tell if OTC drugs are helping or not. I always take two more tabs at bedtime and can get a good night's sleep, although on several occasions my legs wake me with restlessness in the morning.
Just a slight cough, non-productive, involuntary

- By jim bechard: I have water retention, high blood pressure, mitral leaky valve, have had 2 by-passes.
Can all these drugs combined cause the water on the lung. Should I give them all up and just take natural vitamins. All my troubles started in May and I am getting worse. Can the furosemide aggravate the water on the lung, or has it caused the water on the lung?
