Thanks for your question. All drugs can cause side effects, but I have never heard of Fortzaar causing anxiety or panic attacks. Fortzaar is a combination of losartan, a drug which has remarkably few side effects, and hydrochlorothiazide, which is a diuretic and can cause side effects but is not known to case anxiety or panic attacks. I strongly suspect the anxiety and panic attacks are related to something other than Fortzaar.
On the other hand, Lomanor (amlodipine) is well known to cause ankle swelling.
I would stop Lomanor and ask your physician to prescribe something in its place. A similar drug which has less tendency to cause ankle swelling is Zanidip, (lercanidipine) which you may like to try instead of Lomanor
By all means stop the Fortzaar as well, and get your doctor to prescribe an alternative ARB-diuretic combination, but I do not think stopping Fortzaar will get rid of the anxiety and panic attacks.
