Sulfasalazine on rare occasions can cause nephrotic syndrome. The symtpoms of nephrotic syndrome are:
Swelling (edema ) general;around the eyes; in the extremities, especially the feet and ankles
Foamy appearance of the urine
Weight gain (unintentional) from fluid retention
High blood pressure
Perhaps you should talk to your doctor about
your new problem and symptoms. I am not trying to be an alarmist but I just discovered that Celebrex caused my electrolytes go all out of whack. I gained 4 pounds in 8 days and my legs got very swollen. I stopped the meds on my own but had I not, I could have gotten into serious problems.
