Off and on since I began taking meds my feet swell up. I am taking lasix, and I prop my feet up as much as possible. I think it is a side effect of the 15mg/day Prednisone I am taking. Has anyone else had this problem, and, does anyone know of any home remedies that might help to alleviate the swelling?

P.S. I know this isn't related to depression, but it is depressing and there is no specific place for it on the board.

Hey, Jamie,

Tried looking up electric salts and got "epsom" salts. Synonymous terms?

That is what I was wondering. I know that epsom salts do wonders for swelling.

Hope that your feet feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen
