  • Angel, 'm confused here. Maybe a little too much detail? **smile**

    But the bottom line here is that you are taking the meds and they're NOT helping. right? First question is whether this is a med that's supposed to take some time to help. There are plenty of meds that will not actually improve symptoms for several days.

    What does the packaging say about side effects and length of time for results?

  • This is the second time you've asked strangers on CafeMom whether or not you should take your medicine or not.

    Please stop asking non medical professionals this kind of information. Go back to your doctor and discuss all of your bleeding and migraine issues with him and let him decide what you should or should not be taking. That is the only way you're going to get better. We are not doctors and do not know your medical chart.

    Please take care of yourself. Excessive bleeding can have many causes like cysts, tumors, and polyps to name a few. Let your doctor decide what will get you well.

  • Hi Linda, Are you taking these as prescribed? From what you wrote it sounds like you are just taking them when you feel like it. This will not help you get better. Be consistent in your care. We all care about you and want you to feel better. Follow the advice of your Dr.
