Hi all, I'm having a hell of a time at the moment, itching around 80% of the day and to top it all the dreaded menopause has reared it's ugly head, I'm well in to it but the flushes are back with a vengeance and every time I flush it makes my itch worse.
I've tried the HRT patches (full strength) but they didn't make any difference and to be honest I didn't want to use them long term.
I went back to my GP 2 weeks ago and she prescribed Dixarit 50mcg's 3 times a day they are Clonidine Hydrochloride, anyway to cut a long story short she said that if they are going to work that I would have some effect after a couple of days, well I have had no effect apart from feeling really miserable and wondering why I bother because no one seems to have a clue.
Yes you've all guessed it!,,, I'm feeling very sorry for myself, I feel like it's having an effect on my relationship with my partner who I must add is very understanding and puts up with my sleepless agitated nights and exhausted days really well but I just feel helpless it seems like it's one thing after another, I'm sat here crying now and can't seem to stop, I'm sorry I know we all have similar problems and usually I cope really well but having a massive blip.
Thank you all for being there and I hope I haven't depressed you too much, any suggestions will be gratefully received.
