Question: Hi,
I have taken primolut N to delay my periods for few days. I got my periods on 14thDec, 2012 but It's different this time. I feeling hungry all the time and feeling giddy. I feel I have put on little weight too. I am going through Infertility stress (husband side) and last 2 weeks has been a very stressful time due to this. Please suggest if this giddiness and feverish feeling is normal while having periods or anything to care for ?

Thanks for posting your query.
Due to primolut-N there can be water retention, breast tenderness, abdominal pain, nausea & vomiting.
Your main symptom is of feeling hungry & giddiness that can be due to hypoglycemia.
So get your blood pressure & blood sugar level checked.
Do not be worried from your husband side there are so many advanced technology to treat infertility like ICSI, IUI.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be available for your further queries.

Thanks for your quick reply.
Blood pressure & blood sugar could be another temporary side effect of this primolut N ?
are you suggesting these checks to me in general ?
I got my BP checked on saturday and it was 130/80. Does it mean that I have high Blood Pressure attacked me ? I am scared...

Thanks & Regards

Welcome back.
Blood pressure & blood sugar are not under side effects of primolut-N.
Your symptoms are suggesting that you can have hypoglycemia.
So get your blood sugar checked.
BP of 130/80 is normal so do not worry about it.
I hope your query has been answered.

Hi I am a male 57 years old, had severe knee pain and swelling in knees, lost 14 lbs in two weeks, after 6 vials of blood the only thing my family physician sould find was an elevated sed level, he made an appointment with a Rheumetologist for me in September, I was taking Simvastatin for 3 years and he had started me on Azor which I took in combination for about 2 weeks and that is when all the knee issues started, he then changed my high blood pressure medication to one that has a diuretic in it and that took the knee swelling down considerably however i now have stiffness in both knees and find it very difficult to get through the day , i have not taken any more simvastatin and am taking 1800 mg motrin a day to try to relieve it.
