Hey gang.
So I finally got in to talk to the dr and have been on 2 meds now for just over 3 weeks. I have noticed a HUGE difference in my ability to handle my stress and so far will continue to follow with the dr.
I am on Zoloft(50mg tablet)(started at 1/2 tablet the first week, 1 full tablet the 2nd week, and now it's 1 1/2 tablets a day in the morning)
I am also on Klonopin(0.5mg tablet)I take 1/2 tablet in the morning and 1 full tablet at night before bed.
My question is...can these affect my menstruation? I am usually fairly normal but this month I haven't started yet and though I'm not completely concerned I was just curious if one of the causes could be the medication.
Thanks in advance for any help. This is my first experience with any anxiety meds and I go back to the dr in approximately 2-3 weeks to reevaluate my dosages. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced any problems with their monthly.

Good Evening, to answer your question I believe that stress or anxiety could affect your cycle but I do not have any info on the meds themselve.
Hopefully someone with experience will come along with an answer for you.
Take care

I'm on both of those meds and haven't had a problem. One med that is known for it is zyprexa which makes me 10days late yet my pms starts at day 25 still so I get the extra 10days of it, ARGH!
