Surgical menopause symptoms

Yes I too tried Welburtrin, what a ride that was.. I really had high hopes for that one, but nope it actually made me a nervous wreck! SO HAPPY Lexapro is working for you...

Surgical menopause symptoms

Yes I do know I take it too, after the first 7 nights I take it about half the week, I really love waking up and only been up once in the night, its worth it, I seem so much less stressed during the day once I have a full nights sleep, seems so weird to realize I have not been up every 1-2 hours all night like I have for so many years.. you know? Read up on Ambien, its suppose to be pretty safe... I have ativan I have taken for a few years now on and off for anxiety, but I take one or the other never want to mix the two... good luck!

Surgical menopause symptoms

Four days after surgery I was having hot flashes, night sweats and I was an emotional train wreck. I was having hot flashes about every 20 seconds. I knew I was going to go through this, however i never imagined that it would be so bad. My doctor prescribed me Estrace and we had to increase my dosage. My doctor apologized because i am very thin and when you are this thin there is no place to store the estrigin bringing on all of these things a lot sooner.

Since my dosage has been corrected i am doing okay, i still seem a little super sensitive at times, but everyday gets better.

Thank you! I guess this is all going to take time and patience as we adjust and heal from this surgery.

Surgical menopause symptoms

I had my surgery on 8/1 and started having symptoms of surgical menopause right away. I slept the night of my surgery and then did not sleep again the next 3 days in the hospital. Once I got home, I could not fall asleep and think I only fell asleep what little I did out of exhaustion! I was not able to go on HRT for 2 months due to endo left on bowel. I did however start Zoloft and that helped me fall asleep and curbed the morning anxiety, but I would still wake up every couple hours. I have since started Climara .06 and also progesterone cream and can actually fall asleep and stay asleep for about 4 hours, but then I wake up. However, I am able to fall back asleep now, which is a bonus. I think that once you find the right hormone it really does help the sleeping, but I wonder if I will ever get 7 to 8 hours straight sleep again. Thank God though the night sweats are gone with the Climara.

The sleeping situation you have sounds somewhat simular to mine and once I get hormone balanced I hope I sleep better.
