Possibly either: The medication may be causing some feelings of fatigue, particularly if you have just started to use it. Stay with it and consult with your doctor regarding side effects. Maintaining good exercise and eating habits as well as working toward getting adequate night time rest is also important for the treatment of depression as well.

What are the safest methods of hormonal replacement for menopausal women. #nqlu my sexual energy is fading as I am now 60. I wonder if hormonal replacement might help but am concerned about negative side effects.

What are the safest methods of hormonal replacement for menopausal women. 

#nqlu my sexual energy is fading as I am now 60. I wonder if hormonal replacement might help but am concerned about negative side effects.

Hormone : Hormone replacement therapy (hrt) is a system of treatment with estrogen and Progesterone hormones for surgically menopausal, perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. The hrt treatment is based on the finding that estrogen supplementation after the menopause prevents physical and psychological discomfort caused by diminished circulating estrogen and Progesterone hormones. Evidence suggests that hrt reduces symptoms of depression, improves mood and energy, and improves cognition in postmenopausal women. However, it can also have significant side effects including pulmonary embolism and an increased risk for certain cancers. Research studies show that not all women benefit from hrt. It appears that the response to hrt depends on variations in the apolipoprotein e gene (also known as apoe). Women who are apoe ε3 allele carriers (slightly more than half of all women) show significant improvements in mood, memory and slowing of atherosclerosis progression with hrt. However, women who are apoe ε4 allele carriers (about 20% of all women) tend to benefit from hrt less or not at all. Therefore, determination of the apoe genotype can be an important factor in deciding on hrt. There could be other factors as well that depend on your personal health history. The best way to learn about them would be to discuss this with your family doctor. However, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 877-483-2071 for more information on genetic testing.

How many times a week can i have the alcohol free Red Bull energy drink, without facing any real side effects or increased blood sugar ?

How many times a week can i have the alcohol free Red Bull energy drink, without facing any real side effects or increased blood sugar ?

Caffeine & sugar: An 8 oz. can of Red Bull energy drink has 27 grams of sugar and 80 mg of caffeine and traces of B vitamins. Diabetics should avoid. This liquid sugar load causes a spike and then crash in blood sugar. It's not healthy any day of the week.

Having honey with warm water in early morning cause any side effects ? Especially with sexual energy ?
Addimg lemon to the previous can cuse any side

No problem: I know that it is a good drink to sooth your throat- if you have sore throat. I don't know and i don't think it has anything to do with sexual energy, however. Watch out the sugar content from honey and if you have acid reflux problem- watch out for the lemon etc.

I'm on several meds with side effects of fatigued. But i eat healthy and exercise daily. Is there something i can take for energy.

I'm on several meds with side effects of fatigued.  But i eat healthy and exercise daily. Is there something i can take for energy.

Re-evaluate: Overweight, in pain, and depressed one needs to look for low adrenal function, low blood pressure , deficiencies or toxicities causing fatigue. 60 minutes of rhythmic movement l in intervals of 1-2 minutes every 10 minutes while awake would help with weight loss and improve circulation. Make sure one isn't vit d3 deficient. One might need methyl folate (folic acid) or methyl cobalamine.

Had acth stimu injection test 2 check for secondary adrenal insuff.I was still exhausted after injection.Was i supposed to feel energy/side effects?

Had acth stimu injection test 2 check for secondary adrenal insuff.I was still exhausted after injection.Was i supposed to feel energy/side effects?

No: The acth stimulation test is just to see if your adrenal glands would respond to a single dose of acth. It doesn't provide the prolonged stimulation needed to you to start feeling better, if that is your root problem; also, if you didn't have secondary adrenal insufficiency, and it was primary, there would be no response anyways.
