I am 50 and going through menopause. I cant sleep, night…

Customer Question
I am 50 and...

I am 50 and going through menopause. I cant sleep, night sweats, constant thirst at night, and significant weight gain. I know I need to exercise but I don't. Can you help?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes but she isn't much help. I take diovan for high blood pressure, an antacid that I forget the name of and imitrex as needed for migraines. I did have a prescription for contrave for the weight gain but it doesn't help either. I took it for 2 months with no success and it is too expensive for the results

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

I take 25mg of diovan and an antacid that starts with an O. I think it is like prilosec

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of right now.

Ok, good. Has that doctor checked your estrogen and progesterone levels recently?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
