ADD meds and HRT

Any of you ladies on HRT? My ovaries don't produce hormones anymore so my gyno put me on estradiol creme and testosterone creme, my blood levels after 8 weeks on it has improved, but I don't have any motivation or energy I used to have. Also, I end up taking all of my prescribed Dexedrine in two weeks!

Has anyone else noticed this? I've cut back on the estrogen because it caused muscle atrophy - I mean I workout, eat right, spend $$ on supplements, and then all my gains turned into fat

Re: ADD meds and HRT

What do you mean you end up taking all your dexedrine in 2 weeks? Do you mean your doctor has you increase it and thats why?

I just got back on HRT and I've been able to decrease my Adderall dosage per day.

Talk to your OB/GYN and see if you need a different HRT.
