Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for prempro to work


Avatar n tn i know that it is every other day to get off the med but how long to you go every other an also when do you start every 3rd day. how long does it actually take to eventually dose down to nothing.
Avatar n tn not enough knowledge on your concerns but Synthroid does take that long to reach peak effect!
Avatar n tn It was a little painful getting it taken out and the new one put in, but for me the pain was worth it to continue to be period-free for another 5 years! Recently I have been experiencing hot flashes and night sweats so I asked my doctor if I could be going through menopause. She ordered bloodwork to check my hormones and informed me last week that yes, in fact I am quite far into menopause!!! (remember, age 39)!
Avatar n tn * Emollients during the drying/scaling phase of the condition, to prevent cracking and itching. While petroleum jelly may work well as a barrier cream, it does not absorb into the skin and or allow it to breathe, so may actually be less helpful. * Salt soaks - maintaining palms for 40 minutes to an hour immersed in a salt solution of 1/4 salt dissolved in water. Repeating treatment for 3-4 days or additionally if required.
Avatar n tn She is not licensed to perscribed medication however she told me that I do not need to be on Zoloft (which was perscribed by another doctor and I have been on for years) and told me to get off of it. So, unfortunately, I took her poor advice, went off Zoloft cold and had terrible side effects such as mood/mental changes, lack of sleep and weight loose.
Avatar f tn Hopefully, this gives you enough information to help decide how to proceed and it isn't long before you are feeling better. Keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I am convinced companies like Wyeth should be government run or monitored somehow. How many coverups and under the table payoffs and bribes does it take before we wake up? Remember DES? If you research the history of HRT, you will discover what a total scam it was and is. They make billions sucking in women with dangerous, unproven drugs. This is one blog I came across that talks about it... http://drhotzeblog.netymology.
Avatar n tn anyway I am now trying the arimidex have just been taking it since Tuesday 23,, How long does it take on the arimidex to start having side effects, With me on the Aromasin it was just 2 weeks then wham they started big time. I know the difference between the two is Aromasin is a steroid and Arimidex is not. Has anyone taking the Arimidex had depression with it?
Avatar n tn My gyn/onc told me to take HRT only is I really felt I needed it. If it was just to bad to handle. My first hot flashes were about a week after surgery. Really bad!!! The cold after was almost worse. Anyway, they went away for awhile and are now back but not so bad. Soooo, I think you should take your own feelings about how you are doing and your gyn/onc advice about what to do.
Avatar m tn I just recently skipped a month and a half between periods then had a period that lasted for 10 days. That's long for me since I normally only have a period for 2 to 3 days. Then after the 10 days the period ended, five days later another period started and lasted for 6 days. First 10 days was a light period and the second 6 day period was very heavy and lots of clotting. Now it stopped a week ago and waiting to see what will happen next.
Avatar n tn If you wouldn't mind an additional question or two. How long typically does it take to withdraw from nicotine? I've also eliminated caffeine from my diet in the last week--maybe I'm cutting out too much at once?
Avatar n tn thanks for the input it gives me lots to think about. My mood swings mostly involves crying (pity parties) and unprovoked anger. The hot flashes wake me two to three times a night. In combination with the PVC's and PAC's they are overwhelming.
Avatar f tn (Of course, he'd think of THAT!) Also, how long is it before you can be intimate again after surgery? Okay, I think that's it for now.
Avatar f tn This is a change for me since I was on my own for several years and only had myself to take care of until my mom became ill with Alzheimer's. Anyway, thank you again for your help and I am going to get a look at that book you recommended and continue doing my research and try to find a doctor that can help me in the Seattle/Tacoma area.
252327 tn?1250187576 I added the coq10 about 3 weeks ago as far as the progesterone don't think I have any or last time it was done it was maybe 2. I did take prempro years ago and did fine on it, when I stopped it thats when the hash's kicked in. Since then I have not used any hormones. Lowered my t4 med yesterday to 75mcg and did not take a b12 shot yesterday. Last night I slept fine..Ill see how it goes in a few weeks. If I get sluggish I will alternate 75 with 88.
Avatar n tn He talked about how helpful it is regarding bladder issues. I am trying to stall off having bladder surgery for constant leaking. I have been able to control this through hormone use, particularly estrogen and local (in the vagina) estriol, which I have to get from a compounder. Some women use estrace for this. People think of vaginal dryness and I have suffered from that, but that gets all tied up with vaginal atrophy and then bladder issues.
Avatar n tn My wife provided everyone with phamplets, and brochures that the CDC sent me to pass out, and we had enough for the class to take home to friends and family. The center is going to have all that WANT to be tested, tested for Hepatitis ASAP.. But that is the reality.. PEOPLE do not know. People do not realize the SEVERITY of the disease, and are shocked and almost in disbelief when they find out the truth. But why haven't people heard about HCV?
Avatar f tn thought you folks taking bio's, BHRT, would be interested in this report today from the FDA saying that bio's are not better than taking the individual hormones separately.
Avatar f tn It took almost a year to find out that the big problems I was having was caused by a lack of progesterone. But, it takes three months for it to totally deplete from your system, and it was three months practically to the day that I wondered what on earth was going on.
Avatar n tn Any thoughts on whether it is better to take it or not. The doctor put me on Primarin.....and wondering how long I should take it or if. I am on 2nd day of taking it and have had heart palpatations last couple days.
196469 tn?1365391575 I will say that I have read of other's reports that they did not do well on the progesterone, but I still have to wonder (and these are just thoughts of course) if it is a question of the receptor sites getting all agitated as they can when you start progesterone (or estrogen if you have been deficient for a long time)...I don't know. I read somewhere recently that it may take months or even years for some to get all straightened out.
Avatar n tn ) How long did it take for you to recover from the pains/discomfort?
Avatar n tn They have been making me sick to my stomach and I refuse to take it. It also causes extreme weight gain. My twin still takes it. Is there anything else available to help with hypothyroidism? I try to battle all of the symptoms with natural herbs. My doctor tells me there is nothing else.....I believe there is...there had to be other things before synthetic medicine. I also have two small tumors on my thyroid that have been biopsed and are being monitered.
Avatar n tn There is so much to learn regarding all of this, but you need to research it all so that you can understand how the body uses hormones to protect and how you need to stay balacned. Northrup's book gives good information, too, to those who do not want to use the hormones unless it is as a last resort. I have more information regarding all of this on my profile and on my journal entry. For Dee.....
120574 tn?1240771440 I went through a natural menopause prior to surgery and yes, it did get much worse before it got better. I don't want to freak you out, but it could take a long time for that to years. My hot flashes lasted about 4 or 5 years and were sometimes mild, sometimes horrible with sweat rolling down my face in the middle of my office (ugh). I read about something called TheraPause on the Hystersisters site yesterday.
Avatar n tn I am 41 with a strong family history of cancer. My mother had breast AND kidney cancer, and I recently lost my father to metastatic colorectal cancer. That being said, after having pain in the area of my left ovary, an ultasound found that I have "something" growing on my left ovary. A repeat ultrasound showed that it is growing, and I was giving the choice to leave it and "watch it" or have it removed. I did have a CA-125 blood test, which was "normal".
Avatar n tn I have had the same thing - I never heard of numbness from menopause, so I'm so thankful for this forum! It doesn't seem to get worse, it comes and goes, and it travels around. It feels like tingling, or itching in my skin, and numbness, but only on the surface. I can feel everything, and all digits and such work just fine. As a matter of fact, I've had more energy than ever lately, because my husband finally got himself a CPAP.
Avatar n tn Sad thing is there is no way to measure or test for it today. I was told we were a year out from being able to get answers for it. I was put on a list for trail medications. I am sorry to bring bad news but so far I have not found why I am gaining. Oh yeah a nutritionist saw my meal planner and said it was great so I know I am not eating junk food and that is why I am gaining weight.
Avatar n tn Suzsen, I can understand you pause when it comes to removing both of your ovaries, but I have to say that it has been the best thing for me. Although I have only had the last ovary out for 2 weeks, I feel so much better. The menopausal(sp) symptoms have not been bad (some hot flashes), but I have only been on the hormones since Friday. I believe this was the best thing for me. I will be praying that the answer of what you should do comes to you soon.
