****Clonidine Question******

Long story short.  My doctor switched my Ativan to Clonidine 0.01 for my PMDD night sweats.  Has anyone ever taken it for this reason?  Did it work, and is 0.01 a low dose.  I am afraid to take it because I don't have high BP.  Just curious and nervous about taking it.

I am afraid to take the OTC things because not only do I smoke but my mother had breast cancer, so replacement is out.  I am really frustrated because she says If you still have aunt flo then your not in menopause, but she says they can't check my hormone levels unless aunt flo left town for good.  I don't know if I believe that.  something is wrong and I'd like to know where I am pre-pause whatever......she says.....we cant do that????grrrrrrrrrr.  I do get hot flashes.....i think?  it happens maybe once in a blue moon so I'm just not sure......thats why i am getting so frustrated !!!!!!!!!!!

Have you girls tried yam cream? It really does help. Boosts the estrogen by giving you progesterone. Increasing soy intakes help too.

You can be in peri-menapause for years before you stop having your period. Thats really not making sence to me that she can't check your hormone levels.  They checked my sister's. She had a hysterectomy but had her ovaries left. So they didn't know if she was still ovulating and they tested her.
