HRT en Xenical

Hallo Dr;

Op 49 het ek 'n Historoskopie gehad omdat ek vir 8 weke gebloei het. (Ek verstaan die geleerde naam daarvoor het iets met 'n ballon/blasie te doen). Ek is reeds jare op anti depressant (Venlor 150mg) en Xanor agv Post Traumatiese stres. My Gynea het my op Activelle gesit wat ek nou reeds een jaar gebruik. My gewig het die afgelope 6 jr met 35 kg toegeneem. My GP het Xenical voorgeskryf - gebruik dit nou 5 maande. Ek verloor egter nie gewig nie, kry steeds hittegolwe (erger as warmgloede), en het gereeld afskeidings, hoewel ek sedert die Histeroskopie nooit weer gemenstueer het nie. Wat kan ek aan die gewig en warm gloede doen? Gebruik ek dalk die Xenical verkeerd - slegs igv 'n vetterige ete. Moet ek dit daagliks neem, ongeag die vetterigheid of nie, van die ete?

Ek is desperaat!!!

As I understand it, Xenical should be used daily. Unfortunately weight gain after the menopause is a problem. You should be screened for insulin resistance and a dietician may help. If the Activelle is not helping with the hot flushes, perhaps you should try a different form of HRT.

Best wishes
