Has anyone using Tamoxifen been prescribed Gabepentin for hot flashes and sleep?
Gabepentin and Tamoxifen: Has anyone... - Breast Cancer Haven
OMG is there something that can help with sleep?? It just doesn't happen for me and is getting worse. I stayed up all night on Tuesday to see if that would work the next night. It didn't. Have just sent the husband out for tonic to see if getting drunk will do it. I have plenty of gin - ha ha ha. Sleep envy is soooo real.
I was having huge sleep challenges and the Gabapentin seems to really help me.
I think the lack of estrogen due to Tamoxifen has a big effect on sleep- definitely affected my sleep cycle- I tried melatonin timed release 10mg plus added magnesium and valerian and these helped for awhile but then stopped working-
Maybe try something natural first- I also tried a couple of different sleeping pills - which did work-Trazadone and Zopiclone but was told I couldn’t / shouldn’t use them long term so that was where I was at when Gabepentin was prescribed- see what yr doctor thinks- sleep is so important!!
Best of luck getting your 💤 back on track
