Let's Take a Look at the Study
Thank you for this article. I've read about (at least) one of these drugs in the professional lit., but yours went into greater detail of the pharmacodynamics.
Any idea how long hot flashes/sleep disturbances last after ending hormone therapy? I'm 7 weeks out from my last Climara patch and at the hot flash/sleep disturbance point. I thought I'd see what life was like patch-free after 11 years on hormone therapy, but at this point I'm ready to get back on it. Like now! Whew!
Following with great interest and fascinated by the 'causes' of hot flashes?
Will be following this research with great interest. I'm a 67 year old woman with hysterectomy, but still having hot flashes to my eternal frustration. I'm wondering if there's a stress component now though. The mildest anxiety (such as driving in an area I'm not familiar with), has me rolling down the window and tearing off my winter scarf. I'd like to hear if other women my age experience this too.
