Hello,

All medications that are prescribed by doctors have side effects and the ones you mention your mother is taking are no different.

If the symptoms are INDEED those of the drugs and not due to other condition such as Vitamin B12 or D deficiencies, or INTERACTIONS of any of these medications with other drugs she may be taking for other conditions collateral effects of the drugs that could cause DEHYDRATION (lack of fluid volume) or HYPOGLYCEMIA (low blood sugars) then, you could meet with the physician and bring these items up so they can explain if any options to those drugs exist or whether these medications are distinctly necessary for her to have any chance at slowing down the progress of the disease.

The family will have to weigh the EXPECTED BENEFITS of the drugs and SIDE EFFECTS you are witnessing to decide if it's an acceptable tradeoff.

These are not easy decisions and should be made together with your mother's doctor and your mother if possible.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist

I am 46 years old and had a partial hysterectomy at 33 years. I have had 6 pelvic surgeries after the birth of my only child. Currently I am on 200 mg bio identical HRT Progestrone and are taking 100mg of DIM to remove oestrogen dominance. I am on 20 mg of Prozac and take magnesium Malate Chelate and Vitamin B complex( to help with fibromyalgia). I am going through perimenopause and have noticed over the last few months that my urine smell has changed from occasionally a sweet smell to now a consistent foul stench. Is this perimenopause or Prozac? I am in no pain, although I have had bladder problems for many years due to adhesions and position of bladder from prolapsed and surgery. Why does my urine smell horrendous and offensive?
