my doctor wants me off premarin but have tried before and night sweats and hot flashes come right back I have been on premarin for 12 years due to hysterometry is there vitamins i can take for this.
Soy is supposed to help. There is a pill called estroven that is otc. I once asked my doc would he like to live that way? Men don't seem to have a problem taking women off of estrogen, lol. The fact that you had a hysterectomy should negate any of this for you, he should let you on it.
I also had a hysterectomy at age 30 & due to a blood clot I could not take any type of hormone replacement. But my gynecologist put me on
Neurontin & it works amazing you might ask your Dr. for that. The other thing I have found that works well is Black Cohosh it is sold over the counter in the Vitamin isle. As far as Soy goes it does work but as far as getting this in a pill form it usually does not digest & work as fast. If you can stand the taste of Soy milk that usually works well.
I wish you the best of luck because nobody really understands Hot Flashes until they have them.
Especially Men... I have a female gyneocologist & she totally can relate.. Oh yeah also I found this really cool mat that works Awesome... It is called
" Forever Cool " I found mine at Walgreen's drug store. It is a cooling mat that has some kind of cooling gel that gets cool by room temperature.
Then when you place it on your stomach or back it brings your body temperature down within 5 minutes & it is reusable forever. Once you cool down you just place the mat wherever & it is ready to go in about 15 min. Kathy
