I went through surgical menopause 4 years ago. I couldn't take hormone replacement due to endometriosis. I started the dot 3 weeks ago. I also take 3 blood pressure meds and my blood pressure is now low normal. I started having these 4-6 hours episodes of low blood pressure ie. 75/50. Is this a side effect of the dot? I could find no information on this side effect.View Thread
The only pattern that I have noticed is that the low episodes occur in the afternoons. The patch is 2x a week and I change one in the morning and one in the evening during the week. I can't go off the meds or my blood pressure would be high again. I don't know if this is a rare side effect or if something else is causing it..View Thread
