Help, I was wondering if anyone takes these and can give me a bit of info about them.

My Doc say's my left leg is swelling up because of curculation (spelling) problems, it's good going down the leg but not good coming back up. I am concerned about taking this medication not only because I will be peeing more. :oops:

I don't know anything about the drugs themself but try & google them on the web to see if you can find any more information about it or talk to your local chemist. If your not sure or worried about the side effects mabe get a second opion from another doctor & try a different approch to help your circulation in your legs.

If you are worried about them mate, go and see your doctor and ask them if there is a natural alternative. If you get no joy from him, get a second opinion!! 8)

If you're nto comfortable with a treatment or diagnosis you MUST get more information. If you're still not happy, get a second opinion.

Remember there are millions of conditions that a GP needs to be aware of, as well as the best course of treatment for each one. They are human, and do make mistakes occasionally, as well as forget little things, so if something doesn't feel right you need to make sure that the advice you have been given is the best advice you can get.

Thanks guys, I'm not uncomforable with the treatment or diagnosis I just don't like taking medication if I can find another way. I have bought a support stocking and will wear that while I look into more natural treatments.
