Thanks for the inputs.

Well, it is unlikely that depot injection or the accompanying trihexylphenidyl has caused this leg swelling, although this development needs to be probed further through proper history , examination and investigations.

Kindly get the below mentioned investigations done to rule out organic cause of your swollen legs which may involve one or more organs like heart, kidney, liver, thyroid, etc.

-- Complete blood count with ESR.

--Random Blood Sugar

-- Serum electrolytes

-- ECG

-- Liver Function test

-- Kidney function test.

-- TSH, t3 and t4.

Once these tests rule out / rule in organicity you can discuss future course of treatment with your doctor, one of the options being use of diuretic drug/s to reduce the swelling in the legs along with devising a cause specific drug plan.

I hope this helps.

Wish you all the best.

Please kindly leave a Positive rating if you are satisfied with the answer.
