Tibolone/Livial anybody ?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi .Just started taking livial 2.5mg. Been on it for a month.No anxiety but fuzzy head, lack of motivation,no interest .Feel like I have worse hangover when I wake up even though I haven't drank the night before. Felt different on a few days like  more energy and interest no tiredness but this goes within a day or two and goes back to feeling naff!! Similar to bad pmt.! Iam in surgical menopause. Anxiety has settled with it tho but just feel flat and headachy.Anybody else have experience of Livial??

    Today I've just finished my first month

    I too have no ovaries, they shrivelled and vanished after hysterectomy

    I get the hangover feeling each morning and can't get to sleep until about 2am, reading stories this is all normal and should settle by month 3

      Hi bustersmum

      To be fair the gynaecologyist put me on livial because I was still bleeding and at my age I should not as I was without periods for 18 months then bleeding started so had lots of tests done down below and all came back ok so he decided to put me on livial now it did stop the bleeding but unfortunately the other stuff like hot sweats stayed with me I get burning sensationS in my legs starts at my knees and work it's way up my body on an evening startS about 8.30 pm so it's not doing much so my Dr decided to try me on CITALOPRAM to run along side of livial but only been on them 2/3 weeks so until I see my gynaecologyist I'm at a stand still x
