I don't want to seem like I'm nagging on this point, but I wish all patients would be far more demanding of doctors who short-change them. Every doctor, EVERY time he prescribed ANYTHING for a patient has an absolute duty to describe in useful detail, and checking that the patient fully understands, all significant problems, side-effects, interactions and other troubles that might arise when the drug im taken, AND to make it clear they will be available to take phone calls if anything unexpected arisesm while the drug is being taken.
Good to hear that the Molipaxin seems generally to be suiting you. ( and I hope, if it has been necessary for 7 different drugs to have been tried, that this process is being done by a psychiatrist rather than only a GP ).
Some meds may cause a degree of water retention, but a swollen face is not one I have come across, though maybe, as retained water / oedema tends to pool at whatever part of the body is geographically lower ( and thus usually ankles during the day ) maybe this might happen if you lie flat or with your head for some reason somewhat downhill ! But anyway, this is something I think you should phone and report to the prescribing doctor to check what he thinks, as he chose this drug. Most side-effects ten to go away after the first couple of weeks on a medicine ; water retention can be helped by taking a dieuretic which increases the excretion of water, but this is a complex issue which your doctor would need to decide based on his greater knowledge of you and your particular situation
