Customer Question
I went thru menopause...

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.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take those 2 that I mentioned. The only time I had a allergic reaction was after delivery they gave me morphine.

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

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
