LONG_TIME drug user i was~~~~I have been on Suboxone since dec.(wonderful med) have ADD also so the doctor put me on Provigil a month ago.for the ADD and my lack of energy. I have noticed for the past couple of weeks that my hands and feet are swelling.I went to a regular M.D. and he put me on a diuretic to get the fluid off, but i did not reveal to him the meds i am taking, ONLY my psych. knows, but the fld. pill is not getting rid of the excessive flds  i am having more in my feet and ankles. Has anyone who is on either/or one of these meds notice fld retention. For sure i do need to have a liver study, i did have a kidney test done with no signs of renal failure. All those yrs of abuse i feel is catching up with me.I am praying that this(edema) will resolve!!!!. for once i am content  and really enjoying LIFE. without depending on "happy-pills" All i can think of is the way ELVIS looked (the drug puff)```------WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER--THANKS FOR ANY INPUT---AND ESP THIS FORUM -A GOD-SEND IT IS TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT ALONE.KEEP THE FAITH--LOVE FROM ALABAMA

I had swollen hands when I was taking percs too. I also get that if I have been drinking. The next morning I wake up swollen and puffy and bloatd.

I am on suboxone now and have not noticed any swelling, but I just started. If it happens on the suboxone I will let you know.
