    You should start to feel the benefit around 6 weeks its very subtle , once it has kicked in you should feel so much better. i have taken it for seven years now. I had the same as you anxiety sweats feel so much better taking hrt.

    Hi, it depends on the person and what your symptoms are really. With some people it can work within days although they say to give it at least 3 months. With some of my symptoms I felt a difference within the first two weeks x

    Just a quick note, I was on Elleste for 3 weeks. Felt okay for first three weeks then anxiety, anger, stress went through the roof! I stopped taking the tablets and went back to dr. He has now put me on Femoston which has a different kind of progesterone. Have only been on it for 10 days so not sure if same thing will happen. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know so if the green pills affect you negatively you know there are other options x

      Hi, I don't want to jinx it but so far so good. Anxiety fine, no hot flushes, less soreness down below, more happy about things. I did notice that I was really tired still but someone recommended taking B Complex with B12 tablets from Holland and Barretts and although I've only been taking them for 3 days I can feel the difference so I'm feeling cautiously optimistic at the moment x

      Hi

      Hopefully things will pick up soon. What did you change too?

      I'm on day 5 of the green tablets. Woke this morning tired, backache and generally achy allover. I'm assuming it's the PMT.
