My husband was on amlodipine 5mg table and he gain a lot of fluid retention about 15 lb , and his ankles and feet were really swollen. Then he switched to losartan and his fluid retention increased and liver enzymes and potassium went up. Is there blood pressure that doesn't make weight gain?

I was admitted at the local Hospital as an emergency with extremely low blood pressure/semi conscience. While in the ICU I experienced rapid heart beat which the heart Doctor more than an hour to get to slow in down to normal speed. After which they place me on Amlodipine-atorvastatin Oral.
