Premarin mood swings
Questions and Answers
I am a 36 year old who just had a hysterectomy with major problems crying not stop,severe mood swings?
I am 36 years old and I had a hysterecomy a 2 months ago I feel as if I am losing my mind, I cry not stop, I have uncontrollable mood swings, I take premarin, an estrogel, does anyone have any thing that might help at this point I am ready for a ovarian transplant. LOL
It's probably not the actual hysterectomy,I think it's the IDEA of what a post-hysterectomy woman is,that's bringing you down. I'm no pro-and I don't typically recommend them-but you need to start believing that you are EXACTLY what you were before your' womb was removed. I just saw a commercial yesterday for an insertable contraceptive that a woman can get,and it prevents pregnancy for 5 YEARS! Is a woman who has that not just like you? Human beings are very lucky in that we are one of the few mammals on Earth who like to fornicate for reasons OTHER than procreation. And if you think that having the procedure itself is unhot...well,a friend of mine sent me a link to an 'adult' site the other day,and,among other things,it had a woman with ONE LEG doing her thing.Would you trade places with HER(she was hott,btw)? Lemme ask you;can you tell,when you look at a person,if they have an appendix? I can't...

Lack of hormones! Please help?
I had a radical hysterectomy 1 year ago. I was put on Premarin...Did well for a while, but now things are horrible. My symptoms are mood swings, low energy, trouble sleeping, not feeling like myself, mental confusion (really bad), feel like I'm in a fog, etc. Another gen. practitioner gave me some information on Bio-identical Hormone replacement therapy and it sounds promising. Anyone have experience with them. Also, how much does the lack of pregestin play in my mental state? Please help, I feel miserable. I do not want to be social and i feel as though I'm ignoring EVERYBODY...

Dr is recommending Hysterectomy HELP!!?
I have had totally normal periods for all of my life until this june 09. I bled with large clots for 4 weeks straight. (no pain mind you) Then last week, started what i thought was my regular cycle, only to be hit by excruciating pain. I went to the hospital on the doctors request, iron level at 7.2, was given 2 pints of blood, Premarin, very high doses every 4 hours,evident ally to stop or slow bleeding. Let go yesterday, no pain still bleeding but not as much. Have fibroids, this i know, but the doctor is talking about Hysterectomy!!!! I have heard about ablation from a former OBGYN , in fact my current doctor, did this procedure on my former OBGYNs wife. So why would my doc be pushing hysterectomy??? I just turned 40, have not had any other issues, no flashes, no mood swings etc. He hasn't personally examined me at all, though he has seen the ultrasounds and blood work. Should i defiantly make him aware that he hasn't spoken to me about the ablation alternative??? I have 2 kids, school is starting back, i work 9-5 5 days a week, i can't see being incapacitated for 6 weeks or so when i can have a procedure that will limit me for about 4 days? Any guidance????
An ablation is an alternative to a hysterectomy. It may be possible that you may not be an "ideal" candidate for an ablation. Actually, hysterectomies are not as "incapacitating" as they used to be. Recovery for some procedures can be as little as 2 to 3 weeks with some types of laparoscopic hysterectomies.
You can always get a second, third, or fourth opinion if you don't feel comfortable with your gynecologist's recommendation.
What can I do to change my girlfriend's co-dependency on prescription drugs?
My girlfriend is or should I say has been mixing various prescribed medication and smoking weed which has shown definite increase in memory loss, up late night and sleeping all day as well as explosive mood swings. She says it's to help her sleep but in the last 5 weeks she has been driving me crazy with this repeatitve behavior
Here are the medications she is taking. : levothyroxin 1 tablet/daily (150mg); lyrica 1tablet/twice daily 75 mg; premarin 2 tablets/daily 1.25mg; budeprion 1 tablet/twice daily 150mg; pantoprazole 1 tablet/daily 40mg; effexor 1 tablet/daily 75mg; soma 4 tablets/daily 5mg; valium 4 tablets/daily 5mg. What can be done to change this irratic behavior/
I looked up the meds you mentioned & only 3 have a good chance of being abused. The thing is she seems to be having
some serious physical problems, so when you read thru my response keep in mind that her reaction may be from the combination of both the drugs & her phys. problems-or just the drugs. I see a few M.D.s of different diciplines and I always have to remind them of what the others give me-even when nothing has changed. (I recently saw a doctor who has me on the most powerful member of the Valium family & he asked if I needed a refill. I had to tell him that he refilled it by phone 3 days earlier. These people cannot possibly remember everything they do every day, so it is up to the patient to stay on top of it.) Please read the rest. Even though it looks long, it could save her life.
I speak from Hard-won experience & reality when I say that you can't do anything for her if she does not want to change.
However, you can help her by doing a few things. (The goal is to open the lines of honest communication.)
She says she needs these meds for sleep but it doesn't seem to be providing her with regular/healthy sleep patterns. If you can talk to her when she is not in a really bad space then try asking her if she would agree to cut the Soma & Valium in half for a few days, of course let the doctor know in case that is to rapid of a drop. 20mgs of Valium a day is a really high dose. As well as her dose of Soma. She probably sees more than 1 M.D. but do they all know of everything she is taking as well as her reactions to this combination? If they don't know both things I just mentioned then she could take everything as prescribed & still die of an overdose.
If she won't agree to reduce the dosage & still says she needs it-then she may be on her way to being a drug addict. If that is true try to get her to open up about whatever emotions are behind her need for help sleeping. That was the first thing I had to do in order to start recovering from my addiction, as I realized, with help from others, that I wanted to numb myself emotionally. Introduce her to the 12 Step programs-A.A. or N.A. & go with her to what they call open meetings, which accept people who are not themselves addicts/alcoholics.
You might want to go to a support group for the significant others/family members of the above.
If you want to e-mail me about more details you are welcome to. I really hope this works out for both of you. One time I had to leave a girlfriend of mine because she started drinking heavily & even after I told her on several occasions that I could not stand & watch her kill herself that I would leave if she didn't start making positive progress. That's what is so sad about addiction-when I was in it's grasp I had myself believing that I needed it to deal with life, & I wasn't hurting anyone. What I really was doing was choosing chemicals over people because they never let me down (as long as I could get them).
I hope this is only a bad reaction caused by miscommunications between the doctors & your girlfriend.
