I started to be premenopausal about 7 years ago with mild symptoms. They gradually got worse to the point where my gp gave me hrt. Everything was good untill 6 weeks in and i bled heaverly. Back to gp and stop hrt all the symptoms came back ten fold. Three lots of different hrt and 2 years on and feeling awful, tired, angry, depressed, not sleeping, hot flushes over reacting to simple things and back to the gp to have a marina coil fitted but no hope with a large fybroid taking up residence in my womb !!! S*** what do i do now!
My doctor said lets try prozac !!!! What?? antidepressants, no thankyou.
Back home to dread.
Two weeks in and i phone gp and said ok lets try them.
20mg taken in the morning because i dont sleep if i take them at night and hey presto i feel normal again.
Flushes haven't gone completely but are suppressed so bearable, no more anger, i feel calm. Motivation has returned. I still find a week in the month where im tired more than usual but i think that maybe im still having some sort of cycle so ignore it.
The menopause syptoms are deminishing, i know that and the prozac has been my friend thankgod
