I think you may need a diuretic such as hydrochlorothiazide, since this is a first line agent. It is inexpensive as well. Also the blood pressure issue may be related to the diclofenac, as this has as its side effects raising her blood pressure, so I would suggest using it sparingly or changing to another medication class.
