Thanks for your thoughts. I really don't have any effective remedies, which is why I posted. I know too much salt can lead to retaining fluids. My thought on caffeine is that it can dehydrate you, but if you are already fluid overloaded, I don't know if that still happens. I just figured plain water might be best right now.

I quit the Gabitril two days ago, and went back to 60 mg of Nardil and the edema is resolving slowly. Gaining 10 pounds of fluid in one week is scary! So far about 4 pounds have come off in two days. Today feels like it's continuing.

I saw my pdoc who agreed that the Nardil seemed to be responsible, but wondered if the Gabitril was working synergistically with it to make it so much worse than usual. She also recommended that I get a cardiac work up just to be sure, though in case it's unrelated.

I never did take a diuretic, as I didn't want to mess up my BP or electrolytes. Well, I did take a couple doses of Pamprin, which has a mild OTC diuretic in it. But it didn't do anything.

Good luck on the Parnate. My med reference does not list edema as a S/E of Parnate, so hopefully you will not have trouble with this.
