My aunt has high blood pressure and high cholesterol but she was taken off her blood pressure pills but she is still on her cholesterol pills. She is retaining a lot of water in her ankles so she wants to take Diurex. Is it safe to take with her cholesterol pills wiht them or no? How much water should she drink with it?

Also what are some other things she can do beside the pills to get rid of extra wate rin her body?
Also, when should she stop taking the pills?

      I would consult with her physician first. There may be some underlying problems as to why she was taken off the bp meds. They may have not been effective or causing some other issues. Some other things you could try starts with diet and exercise. Try lowering sodium intake, avoiding processed foods(high in sodium), and cutting out foods high in fat. Even a little exercise helps. Walking is a good start. When resting at home, elevate the legs to help against pedal edema which is common in pt’s with htn.
