Q: are there any Blood Pressure medications that don't cause leg swelling?

I've been taking Exforge and Bystolic since July - it was working great until a month later when I started getting swelling in my legs/feet - my doctor recently switched me to new regimen with diovan/tekturna and bystolic - first the leg swelling disappeared for a about a week but came back yesterday and this regimen has not kept my BP at the level where my doctor wants it.  Is anyone taking any BP meds that don't cause leg swelling?

Try Losartan    My feet didnt swell but it didnt control the hbp after a few months but I have multiple sclerosis and alot of stress.   it may work for you.
