Premarin side effects on men

Common Questions and Answers about Premarin side effects on men


Avatar n tn I know that every person acts different on pills and all the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> vary from person to person, but this pill wacked me out. I have never had any problems before and have been on a few different kinds. I am 39 yrs old and got back on the pill do to bad PMS. My Dr. recommended this one because of my age. I started having anxiety and then panic attacks when I was driving on the freeway, then they started to come in town too.
Avatar n tn I have been tapering off effexor XR - from 150mg now to 37.5mg per day. I have had many side effects both while going on this med & while tapering (very slowly) off. While on effexor xr for 6.5 years I was able to wear my extended use contacts without any problems. I am 55 yrs old & have worn soft contacts since my early 20s without problems. My vision is poor- coke bottle lenses. While tapering effexor, I noticed vision changes. I can no longer wear my contacts for more than a day.
Avatar n tn Yes, of course, I didn't have any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> from it, so definitely going to try again. My doctor's keeping me on the same 50mg dosage though. He said he didn't see any reason to increase it with my 21 day progesterone being so high, he knew I had ovulated. So I really can't understand why I didn't get pregnant. I will start taking it again on day 5 which is Sunday 4/13. I'll keep you posted this time around, and you do the same....GOOD LUCK!!!
Avatar f tn I don't know what to attribute my mood swings, depression and general sadness too - my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>premar<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> (all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>) or actual depression. I don't want to take an anti-depressant if I'm not really depressed, just hormonally challenged. How do I figure this out BEFORE I lose my mind??
Avatar n tn As long as that was what I wanted to do with the other known <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of HRT. He agreed with the findings of that article. Since I already have significant fibrosis, I see no real reason to take the estrogen out of the picture and then, start progressing even more. I've never had a problem with being on HRT. I like it. I feel 100% better w/HRT than w/o HRT. I'm not worried about breast cancer. I get my mammo's regularly and they are perfectly fine.
Avatar f tn Ok, to pick that up again - have any women received advice from their liver docs on starting hormone replacement therapy after treatment (assuming you do not attain SVR). I'm wondering if it's safe. Will it do more damage to my liver. My nurse doesn't have much experience in this area and is a bit non-committal when I ask. And while I'm asking - have any women asked about taking testosterone?
Avatar n tn has two 1990 patents combining CoQ10 with statins to prevent CoQ10 depletion and attendant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>) created a life threatening nutrient deficiency in millions of otherwise healthy people, only to then sit back with arrogance and horrific irresponsibility and watch to see what happens - as I see two to three new statin cardiomyopathies per week in my practice, I cannot help but view my once great profession with a mixture of sorrow and contempt. Langsjoen article to FDA http//:www.fda.
359574 tn?1328364024 An aside - my symptoms started about 10 months after stopping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>premar<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> which I had been on for 12 years after surgical menopause at age 41. Hmmm....
Avatar n tn the drugs that mask the symptoms of menopause and have all those icky <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> that the doc wants you to steer clear of)....boy, I was going to make this short...sorry. But, what you want to do is replenish what your body used to make...and have an exact balance (this is soooo key) of progesterone and estrogen. Again....the two together is the absolute best combination. A compounding pharmacist can help you. I am amazed at how much they know this stuff.
Avatar f tn He wants me to think about stopping it and he made me sign a waiver stating that he'd warned me of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of it. My original plan had always been to wait until I was 50. I'm like you, I thought that it was a better idea than to go through menopause so early. My mom has osteoporosis, so I thought that being on the estrogen that I could delay any potential bone-thinning problems as well.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I'm so sorry that you are going to have a hysterectomy. Is it absolutely necessary and have you gone for a second and 3rd opinion? How old are you and do you have children? I had a total abdominal hysterectomy in 1981 when I was in my early 20's due to cancer. I went through radical menopause right after my surgery and it was extreme. I was placed on estrogen and estrogen vaginal cream which I've used off and on for over 20 years.
Avatar n tn I would never take any HRT unless you look up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> first. You will see all kinds of dangerous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> which could put a person in worse condition (or major disease, like breast cancer) than they already are in. I have heard some promising things about biodentical hormones, but I haven't had time to research long term effects and its not 100% natural, so I didn't do that either. I haven't heard any negative side effects yet, but I think it is kind of new.
Avatar f tn And one other thing -- if you can afford to eat organic and non-GMO at least, you're helping the world, not just yourself. Something else to consider is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of these unnatural ways of producing food on the whole ecosystem that keeps us alive.
196469 tn?1365391575 By the way, Effexor is not exactly a great drug either. Just check my blog on the topic and read about its <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> and disastrous record when it comes to attempting to get off it. But let me get back to what matters. The new drug provides a lucrative new revenue stream for Wyeth. How lucrative? Well, on the day it won FDA approval (February 29) Wyeth stock soared 2.5% while the rest of Wall St tumbled 315 points. Did I mention any benefits to patients? I would, if I could think of any.

921323 tn?1268679412 So I thought it was a good idea to readdress the issue, with a renewed focus on HCG this time. Drum roll please... I think the HCG Diet is a bad idea for at least three reasons. 1) Supplementation with HCG has not been proven to be effective as compared to placebo. Multiple double-blind placebo controlled studies have not demonstrated a beneficial effect. Not much else to say about this. It just doesn’t work.

Avatar n tn in my opinion, it has more benefits than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. The FDA gets paid from pharmaceutical companies to approve their meds. (not from tax $) If one diet med works don't u think all the other diet companies will try to bring it down.
Avatar n tn You have to be your own advocate on this issue. Everytime I have had a concern about my HRT (currently I'm on .625mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>premar<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>) I was the one who initiated a change in the dosage, not my Dr. in Canada, my family Dr is the one who is managing all of this, and even he doesn't really know what to tell me. I requested to see an endocrinologist and will get the results back from all those tests this afternoon - I'm very curious as to what my hormone levels are at now.
Avatar m tn I've seen a lot of real warriors here who did everything asked and then more. Certainly 'mental attitude' was not the problem. initially I was going to post this on the other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>, but the article first posted by "dsrt" on genetic pre-determination of SVR made me think it belonged here. This is not to say that a treatment approach cannot make a difference. Just talking about the "mental attitude" part.
299260 tn?1304219705 my big cyst on the left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> is gone... I have one on the right we are going to watch. Tmw, I start my Clomid (CD 3-7). I have an HSG 10/21, next Tuesday. CD 12 u/s 10/25.
Avatar n tn I won't take Reglan or most of the other drugs because of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> and I think they just address the symptom but not the problem. I then went the herbal route taking Digestaway and charcoal - both of which helped tremendously but didn't elimate the problem as I'm just coming off another spell. I had 6 good weeks though and will continue with the herbs and be more aware of the stress factor. I think it's the key so I'm going to start taking kava kava again - don't know why I stopped.
221122 tn?1323014865 Since that time, I have heard many people getting ablations on the left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. I hope I can cope with them until this procedure is more effective. I also hope they will let me get one when that time comes. Sometimes I feel like I need to sleep for a week, because I am one of the lucky ones that do not get woken up by them, and can escape. I am exhausted, though. I hope this run gives me a break for a bit soon.
492652 tn?1252949008 she experiences a painful sensation on the left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of her vaginal wall. this has been going on for quite some time. my outrage with the healthworks she goes to is at an all time high. since she does not have medical insurance she has to be treated by these unqualified, rude, poor excuses for Nurse Practitioners. we do not know what to do. but have scheduled with a regular gynocologist, who will be full priced. i wish i knew what to tell you...
Avatar n tn last one healed from one day to the other. and this new one is on the exact same place but on the opposite <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>...and it's on a place qhere there is a natural vaginal line or wrnkle (do not know how to describe it) I am so scared!
Avatar n tn then next day i was throbbing badly i checked out with a mirror the area and saw that i have like a friction burn on the outer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of my vagina and a small tear on the other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>?...whats the best treatment for this?...its also agony to long shouls it take to heal? a lot of pain still 2 days!!
Avatar n tn Went off the pills after 3 days since these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> are listed on the paperwork. But continued with the gel. One more night to go and today the burning is back again. It's never been terrible burning, just uncomfortable. I also notice that just sitting causes my whole vulvar area to be compressed and uncomfortable. Never noticed this before. So now the GYN wants to do a biopsy. Some people have posted that they've had this. I'm wondering if it hurts or not.
Avatar f tn I have such a great husband but he too wonders what is going on and why? what is the purpose of menopause. Men on pause. I don't want to put my husband on pause. I want to do the things these ads on TV show us. I want to love, laugh and have good times. We both have earned it and now it seems we are being punished instead of rewarded. Oh this way to depressing, isn't it. Lets hope we find a miracle. I know it I find one I will share it with every woman I know.
Avatar n tn I'm a little scared at how much of that I took too, especially because I still have symptoms. Plus, the negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> it can have on your liver. Now I want to get my liver enzymes checked, but am afraid to ask. She said she would just give me more Diflucan if it is only yeast.
