Losartan HCTZ contains Hydrochlorothiazide, which is a diuretic.

Adding another diuretic thus would not be advised as it may cause electrolyte imbalances. Also with your present medications, another diuretic is further not advised.

Keep the legs elevated as much as possible is recommended. Avoid standing for the prolonged time.

Keep leg end of bed elevated.

When you sit, keep it on side stool.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Would floating in my pool or doing some light excersizes in the pool help reduce the swelling.
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 23 days ago

Yes, it would help.

That can be done.
