Hi I am perimenopausal and started getting adhoc hot flushes a couple of years ago.
My GP prescribed me with clonidine last year and when the hot flushes died away, I weaned myself (as suggested by GP) off the clonidnine and when they started again, I resumed taking clonidine.
However about a month ago, the hot flushes have returned and this is despite me taking clonidine. Nothing stops them and its affecting my sleep.
I am due to see my GP next week to review my meds and I wonder if the hot flushes are thyroid related? I am on 100mcg thyroxine and feel fine, apart from the hot flushes.
Any help or advice given, would be much appreciated.
