Discussions that mention xanax

Menopause board

Hi Ladies: I'm sorry I can't offer any better solutions, but I can sure relate to what you are going through. I have been in peri, I'd say, about 2-3 years, but lately it's been a real roller coaster!

Within the past 6 months I have been diagnosed with anxiety and now high blood pressure. I have been prescribed meds for both and they are wiping me out. Both my psych, who Rx'd Xanax as needed and my GP, who has put me on the BP meds, have told me that these feelings of light headedness and drowsieness, will go away in time. But in the mean time, I'm spent.

I feel like I'm totally useless. My sweet hubby is very understanding and has picked up some of the slack around the house, but I still feel guilty that he's had to do more. It's not him complaining, it's more just me feeling guilty. Some days I feel like this will never end.

I have to agree with the seasonal theory. I live in the Northeast and this year, mother nature just can't seem to make up her mind. One day its sunny and mild, the next it's cold and rainy or dreary. It makes me feel like spring is never coming. It definitely seems worse with peri.

Well, I wish I had the answer to this, but unfortunately, I'm in the same boat as the rest of you. At least we do have this board to just get it all out.

Thanks for letting me vent and I wish you all better days ahead.
