Menopause

HRT side effects

04/26/2007

Question:

I had only insomnia as a meno symptom. I tried progesterone cream (gave me nightsweats), bioidenticals (gave me nightsweats) and prempro. The last worked for a few years--now I have nightsweats again. I have fewer on nights when I take 3/4 of a pill.

Am I nuts, or are nightsweats sometimes a side effect of hrt?

Answer:

Night sweats are not usually a side effect of hormones, but we are not all alike.
