Day 268 – Prolactin or Bust!
I finally got around to updating my timeline! It has been a month since the last photos on there but I haven’t gotten any good pictures since I cut my bangs. I got some fantastic news in the mail today, the results from my most recent blood work finally came. What’s even better is that my prolactin levels are down to 9.20 ng/mL which is well within the normal range of 2.64-13.30! This means that when I see my endocrinologist in a week and a half he will most definitely update my estrogen dose. 😀
This means that the anti-psychotic, Invega, that I was on was indeed the cause of my high prolactin. I guess going in the hospital did set me back in terms of progress, but I am thankful that I am finally moving along.
What’s the anti-psych for? Do you have BPD, or schizophrenia? I hope it’s helping. Does that mean you’ll need to change what you’re taking?
Well what happened was, I was hospitalized for depression and anxiety and I was suicidal at the time. The doctor prescribed the anti-psychotic because it is also known to help with anxiety. Long story short I figured out it wasn’t helping and I didn’t really need it so I am off it now and I should be fine with my current meds. 🙂
You are seriously beautiful. *_* I’m loving your blog so far. Good day.
I’m glad you enjoy it. 🙂
