I just ask you about my husband having swollen feet and you

Customer Question
suggested medications can cause it...
I just ask you about my husband having swollen feet and you suggested medications can cause it. I completely forgot about tamsulosin that he takes for control of his urine. Could this be the culprit? He's willing to quit taking it if that could be a possibility. He does have problems with holding urine and had a sense of urgency even with this med.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
