- Hot flashes while taking miralax
After being on daily dose of Miralax for a year and then going off for a few months, after starting back in 2 weeks, experiencing hot flushes periodically all day long last around 30 seconds. I didn't realize when I first started the Miralax for the 1st year that my Hot Flushes may have been a side affect. I even had requested labs to test for menopause which show negative. Again, after I stopped the miralax the hot flushes ceased. As stated above they are back. These did not wait for me to be on the drug 2 or more years either it was within weeks of starting.
- Severe night sweats and hot flashes with cymbalta?
I am 24 years old and I have been having severe night sweats for about the last 2 and a half years. I have been on Cymbalta for about 4 and a half years. These night sweats are so severe that I typically wake up 2-4 times a night drenched in sweat where I have to change the sheets, get a new blanket, and change my clothes. This is usually happening to me about 4-6 times a week. I am not sure if this is related to Cymbalta or not. I have gone to my doctor and had all of the tests done, everything is normal. All of the doctors that I have gone to have been clueless as to what could be causing my night sweats. I am thinking of trying to change my Cymbalta to a different medication, however as I am sure most know, it is a pain in the butt to try and find a good antidepressant that works with your body and any other medications you may be taking. The only thing I am going to try before this is using Menopause medications vitamins. I have found a vitamin/supplement that is supposed to help with night sweats and hot flashes and does not have any hormones in it. I have only been taking it for 2 nights, so no results yet. I hope this works so I dont have to change off of Cymbalta.
- Crestor side effects (1 response)
I'm a vegetarian all my life , very athletic, I work out a lot , I run. In the last year or two My cholesterol seems to go high, my primary Doctor knows that I go for the healthy stuff so he advice a couple of things. But unfortunately nothing woks so he put me on Crestor, it has been a really bad experience, my menstrual periods don't come normal anymore, or sometimes it takes two or three months to come back again. I have hot flashes day or night, and the last one is that I'm gaining weight. I'm not sure what to do, any pill will give you side effects, I never read side effects. I'm 100% percent this is not coincides is real an is happening to me.
- Are fm and premature menopause linked (2 responses)
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at 17. I coped really well with it until I tragically lost my sister, met and married my husband and had a child all in one year. The trauma and also overload of emotions including PND seemed to ramp up all my symptoms. I do not work, I am a SAHM to 3. I rest as often as possible and have learned a new kind of way to live my life and priorities as best possible with my good and bad days. I only medicate with pain medication on my worst days. The others I just breathe through it :-)
After seeing an endocrinologist for what I thought was a thyroid issue, I was surprised and must admit upset to find my bloods revealed premature menopause. Im only 32.
I have wondered if there is a link and how many Fibro suffers have or are going through menopause at a young age. Anytime a link is established somewhere I hold out hope it will lead to a cure. The key maybe in the connection and collection of symptoms. So Im happy to add my name to any study or statistic in regards to this new diagnosis.
However I like many others may have gone through prem menopause even if we didn't have FM. You just don't know :-)
- Steven-johnsons syndrome caused by zoloft
Was diagnosed with depression start of last year due to my Aspergers multiplying school pressures for me. I was not put on any medication until 4 weeks ago. I was put on Zoloft 25mg, which slowly increased to 50mg. The moment I started on 50mg it caused severe lip dryness leading to cracking of the lips and bleeding of the lips. These first problems led to me visiting the general practitioner who dismissed it as being just dry lips. But burning and stinging pain in lip increased to the point where I could not swallow anymore and had to go to the ER. They quickly dismissed it as being simple dehydration with the advise to try and drink as much as possible, but was also advised to stop Zoloft just to be on the safe side. The next day developed water-like mouth ulcers, which then changed into blood ulcers and had a fever jumping between 99.9 and 102.6 Fahrenheit. Went to doctors office again and was told that it was Steven-Johnsons Syndrome. Was given two types of crèmes in hope to stop it spreading and to relieve most of the lip problems. And was also told to take regular, as high as possible, Ibuprofen in order to keep pain under-control. The lip and all the other problems have now left, after 2 months. I am only left with visible scars on my lips. The pain was completely unbearable, felt like being burned, and am happy that pain is now gone.

Since I found this website I will stop taking soma. It's not helping anyway. I will see if the flashes stop.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I am about 1 yr without a period now and should be through menopause by March offically but I have severe hot flashes and/or feelings of being over heated. It is constant throughout the day and night. I am wondering if it could be a side effect from the propanolol? It became severe after being on the medication for about a year. Just seems like it's more than menopause hot flashes. I can't tolerate wearing sweaters or heat above 70 in the house. In fact the cooler the better for me.
