Menopause board


Hi Twanger - I kind of hope you are right although for me that is still a ways off. I'm 57 and I'm only now 17 months postmenopause. I find my worst symptom is not being able to stay asleep. I go right to sleep but I can wake up every hour on the hour (mostly because I'm hot - and my bedroom is cold). My husband has blankets piled on him and I'm tossing everything off!! I finally resorted to 1/2 an Ambien to help and that still doesn't get me through the entire night but it's at least better. I don't want to use it but I found I was falling asleep trying to drive home at night so I only use it the days I have to work. My GP prescribed it for me but my gyn is not happy that I'm using it. He wants me to just use Tylenol PM. I also used to have so much more energy. I hope the sleeping and the energy level return. If 6 years is the magic number I only have 4 1/2 to go - we'll see.

Thanks for the advice.

Mary
