Help, menopause is hellish!
48 year old female lurking around these and other forums reading peoples experiences for the past few months to try and get an insight into what is happening with my body and sanity and I just feel so drained and low.
Doctor started me on norethistirone to help with irregular periods and mood swings. This did help to regulate the periods and made me a normal person again with regards to crazy woman who lost the plot at the trivial, but did nothing for the night sweats and chills!
Doctor took me off the norethistirone and put me onto Eleste duet 1mg and told me to take these for 3 months until they get into my system! 21 days in and I am not functioning at all. Night sweats and chills are driving me insane, wakefulness through the night, exhausted through the day, brain fog, forgetful and now very tearful and low mood. Completely lost my mojo. Starting to feel like what is the point.
I am already on Fluoxetine 2 x 20mg for past 12 years as I have family history of depression/suicide.
Can anyone tell me how long before I feel the positive effects of HRT? I need energy, I have two kids one 11 and the other 3 half who need and deserve a healthy, level headed mum.
Your advice is much appreciated.
