HI, just an update of where i am at the moment. Started taking Elleste Duet Conti at the start of June 2018 after suffering for nearly 2 & a half years with the most excrutiating joint pains. After being on these tablets for just 2 weeks I was back to my old self. Amazing!
However, i went for a check up with my gp at the end of February, she was happy for me to continue on the hrt tablets, i was happy. she also prescribed me Lymecycline antibiotic for a really bad bout of rosacea.
The pharmacy did not have Ellest Duet Conti in stock, so I was given an alternative hrt tablet, it was half the strength but i was told to take 2 a day instead of the normal one dose. So I started to take these new hrt tablets, along with the antibiotics. At this time I had also managed to catch a really heavy head cold. Within 6 days of taking these new tablets & the antibiotics and i was generally feeling awful, my symptoms began again 😦 pains down the front of my leg, really deep hip pain, just like before I Started the hrt tablets in June. I did a bit of research & found that some women can react to having antibiotics while on hrt, so I decided to stop taking the antibiotic. I also stopped taking the alternative hrt tablets (kliovance) and am using my last months worth of Ellest. I cant help being tearful everyday as the thought of being in this much pain again for another lengthy period is so upsetting to me. If anyone else has been in this situation, has your pain gone away after a brief spell of returning? Or, has anyone else been affected by antibiotics? I am very interested in hearing if anyone else has had this happen.
As for the hrt tablets, there is still no Ellest Duet Conti in stock and the gp has now prescribed me Kliofem, same make up as the Ellese apparantley. But I'm at the point of now thinking whats the point of taking the hrt if im going to continue to be in pain? Any thoughts on any of my ramblings would be helpful for me.
