Hi,

Just wanted to ask if your father had swelling in his feet or hands or anywhere else. Frumil is usually given as a diuretic. (Voids excess fluid through urine). I do not see your father losing his balance due to Frumil alone. It might be due to his primary disease-Parkinson. Do consult your doctor before you either stop or alter the dose of the medication.

Regards,
Mamta
