My Dr. put me on Prempro 15 years ago at the age of 42 as I was having some hot flashes. I tried going off of them about 8 years ago and made a real mess of myself. Crippling hot flashes that would render me useless for 2 or 3 minutes. Couldn't think, talk, or function. So I went back on the lower dose (.4?). That wasn't enough, 1 year later I went to the higher dose (.6) Two months ago I decided I need to get off them completely. I went back to the lower dose (.4) as a step down. Now.....how do I get off them altogether? Do I take one everyother day for a while? Help....Dr. got aggravated with me and told me to just stop taking them. I won't do that again.
