I went thru menopause at least 5 years ago and have not had

Customer Question

I went thru menopause at least 5 years ago and have not had hot flashes since. Recently, I break into a sweat all over at least 3 times a day and I'm wondering if it could be the 2 medications I'm taking Duloxetine HCL DR 30mg and Buproprion HCL SR 200 mg. The bupropion I've been on for years but the other for only about 4-6 months.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I take those 2 that I mentioned. The only time I had a allergic reaction was after delivery they gave me morphine.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Most likely the duloxetine is the culprit here

That said, you should still have this checked out with a look at your thyroid function since it could be from a hyperfunctioning thyroid gland

Please let me know if you need any more information
