Hi, I'm been told by the doctor that I have to come of my hormone patches because I've been on them for 6 years. Reduced them to one a week and then down to none. I feel awful, hot sweats, brain fog , headache and terrible anxiety, feel breathless and almost feel like I'm going to loss control. Anyway went to the docs she gave me antidepressants to help with the sweats, and I told her I'd gone back on them because I felt so awful. She said I have to come off them because of the risk of breast cancer. Asked if I could have some more so I could wean myself off them, and she said no you don't need to do that just stop them, but I don't think that's right! What do you ladies think, and what have any of you done to come off them?
Thanks Linda x
