Increase HRT??

I had a LAVH/BSO 4 weeks ago. I started on the Vivelle Dot two weeks ago because I was having some minor heat flashes and figured it was the beginning of the surgical menopause and thought it would be better to start the med early before symptoms got too severe. My doctor agreed and told me it could take 2-4 weeks to know how the med was working. I've been doing well so far, still having heat flashes but they are better and I haven't had any side effects from the med. Now all of a sudden, last night I start having anxiety spells, am crying for no reason and just feel out of it. Could this mean I need to up my dose?

Re: Increase HRT??

You are still quite early on, and hormone changes that are happening may be related to your HRT and may not be at this stage. If you can, it would be better to wait longer before raising your dose. Keep a journal of your symptoms, too - that helps in discussing them with your DR.

If the current symptoms worsen, or don't improve after another week or two, I'd ask the DR if you could try the next higher dose.

Re: Increase HRT??

Thanks. I prefer to wait as long as possible in order to give this dose a chance to work correctly. I am weird when it comes to meds and don't want to take a higher dose than needed. But, I will contact my doctor if the symptoms get to be too much. I've been keeping a journal of symptoms since I started the HRT. Got that idea from the wonderful gals on here!
