1110049 tn?1409402144 t like to think that ladies who do not need Effexor for depression etc. are being prescribed it for hot flashes. We all know how difficult it is to stop Effexor. I myself am not worried for myself, but for others.

Avatar n tn I just want to say that when I took the medication prozac, I didn't have those hot flashes of menopause. It is a great medication and treatment for symptoms other than depression as well. I'm still taking prozac. I stopped a while and those hot flashes returned. Therefore, I'm going to continue to take prozac. I'm taking 20mg and doing great.

Avatar f tn Hot flashes are mostly caused by the hormonal changes of menopause, but can also be affected by lifestyle and medications. A diminished level of estrogen has a direct effect on the hypothalamus, the part of the brain responsible for controlling your appetite, sleep cycles, sex hormones, and body temperature.
1034192 tn?1445509784 Its a little harder this time. Been on the lower dosage for 5 days now and am either having hot flashes or extreme fatigue. Fortuneately I am menopause age so I just blame it on that, even went into my boss and told her in case she notices anything. Also feeling sick at times. I am still motivated and I know there will come the day I will need to bite the bullet and just stop. Still scared and wonder how I will feel on the other side.

Avatar f tn I've had Hot Flashes now for more than 15 years, at one time I was taking a very low dose of prempro, however after discovering that my mother had Breast Cancer I stopped taking this medicine. I really have a difficult time sleeping at night... Cover On and Off all night, switching from the one end of the bed to the other. I don't have high blood preasure, but I do have problems with my kidneys (Kidney Stones).
Avatar f tn I am curious, does anyone take Viibryd for depression? I was switched from Wellbutrin which seemed to make me more anxious and depressed, but this new medicine seems to make hot flashes worse. Sometimes it feels like pins are sticking in my skin of neck and chest. When I asked the doctor, he says he will increase my hormone because I can hardly sleep because of the hot flashes. I had a hysterectomy is why the hormones are given. thanks for any info.

1014822 tn?1338648073 I got hot flashes last night, never had those before on Clomid but heard alot of woman that had.

But I have a good feeling about this cycle. I get my u/s on Nov 3rd to check for follies....that will be cycle day 15.
Avatar n tn Dear mjay, I did some checking regarding dosing of medroxyprogesterone for treatment of hot flashes. After some amount of investigation the information was that 10mg pill daily was the recommended dose. The idea being to use the lowest amount of the medication to take care of the symptom. You should know that the resources quoting the studies of its use for treatment of hot flashes are from 1980 and 1981 journals. There could be more up to date findings but I did not come across any.

Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone with Hypothyroid has ever experienced hot flashes? Sometimes my body suddenly becomes hot and I will get isolated sweating in my forearms, legs, or back.
209987 tn?1451935465 t take BCP) or herbs, but have heard black cohosh...cohash...helps with hot flashes. Hot flashes were the worst symptom I had. I rarely have them now. I've tried sleep meds (prescription and melatonin), but the Rx caused restless leg and I wake up after three hours with melatonin, so I just practice good sleep hygiene: dark room, reg sleep/wake times, no tech after about 8pm, etc. I don't have anxiety with perimenopause, but if you do, addressing that might be appropriate.
