6 days ago · Weaning off zolpidem (Ambien) in Sleep Health

Seems this med works wonderful for some, a friend took ONE table, the next morning she noticed she had gotten up sometime in the night
changed clothes and went back to bed. she did not remember even waking…., she phoned her doctor and he DCed the med.
My MD will NOT prescribe Ambien because of what has happened to some, like even driving at night and finding fast food wrappers on kitchen table
the next morning and not remembering the activities.
We all are wired differently.
Wish I could help, I know 3 people that do not want to get off of it, it works for them.
For sure I think I would ask the prescribing doctor what to do, I would imagine gradually tapering off. If OTC helps you are blessed.

I agree use the 7 day instead of the 1 or 3 day – my issues same as lady shared–after a round of antibiotic. Will remember taking a probiotic in the future after an antibiotic for myself. An elderly aunt developed unrelenting itchiness, called me and I told her what could be the issue since she had been on an antibiotic.
This was many, many years ago, only the 7 day was available and was a prescription medication at that time also. She was in her 80's.
I wish I understood how use these sites' various areas..

Oh my, please consider seeing a doctor. Do you still have periods, Older women can have a tiny bit of blood because of thin vaginal tissue.

Have read that using a hair dryer is good for the area, on low of course. Front and back to really be dry.
My only problem were reactions from antibiotics, the itching is unrelenting.

Wed, Feb 20 10:54pm · Advice on using HRT please in Women's Health

Are you having symptoms of menopause? Having hot flashes? One OTC that can help somewhat is Vitamin E d-alpha tocopherol NOT the dl-alpha tocopherol. The latter is synthetic. I had a surgical menopause, was in my earliest 40's, was put on a tablet daily of Premarin .625, it was controlling the hot flashes to a point. Eventually I was on 2 a day, one AM other PM, gradually have cut down considerably. I am 76 and yes I still have hot flashes. We all differ, I feel you would know if you are experiencing symptoms that would need estrogen. Bear in mind how many years ago treatment was different. A GYN is a must IMHO, maybe see another until you feel at ease.
For now, I don't take the tablets ,only use the Premarin Vaginal Cream, the cream will bypass the liver.
Best wishes for good decisions.

(how i wish there was a thread for FOSAMAX and other meds similar. I am to start it and am not overly comfortable with 2 doctor's views, some of the side effects concern me, For the past few years
my bone scans had been good., not now! For bone health, I have been on Calcium and Vitamin D and magnesium for years)

@airey2 Thank YOU for what you shared, I did not know about FLAX and ESTROGEN. For sure we all are wired differently. Because of hot flashes I have to result to Premarin, no oral, the cream will bypass the liver. At my age I should not be flashing, EVERYTHING has been removed, was left with one Ovary and eventually it had to go also…Non-synthetic Vitamin E helps most of the time.
Stress is worse than many people think..
You shared some valuable information.

Just looked up the oil, don't think we can get it in our state.
Read some positive things about the oil, however.
