    Hi

    I've been taking this for five years. It took about a week to kick in which is longer than the previoud HRT I was on...probably as it's very low dose.

      During the first week I had to wee a lot but that stopped quite quickly. I've not had any other side affects. I tried to come off it about two months ago by taking one every other day but the menopause symptoms came back very badly...including being dizzy, insomnia, brain scramble etc etc! It took a week of resuming normal dose before the symptoms went away.

      Hi I guess they work then, if you had that affect when you came off them, thank you so much for letting me know it means a lot  and I hope they work the same way that they do for you. X

    Hi Sharon, Do you know if these are safe to take. I have read that there are potentially bad side effects from hrt therapy?

      Hi Sharon, yes I think in the end you have to balance what you gain against the risks. The articles from Jaynee may be useful, re supplements. People can be sceptical about herbal stuff and supplements, but I have found that they can work. All the best.x

    Hi Sharon,

    I've been taking the higher dose = 0.625/5 and it was to strong, so now I take this dosage every second day = 1 day on 1 off  it works but I will look forward to now taking the lower dose, it was not available when I started. Just to let you know I have found for me no side effects. It has kept me sane ( it fixed my atrophy problem ) Good luck with this.Regards. S.H.

      Hi just wondered if you're still in the Premique? I've just been prescribed 0.625mg been taking for 5 days & noticed no difference (I have got a terrible cold tho as well atm), just wondered how long it was before you saw any benefits? I'm not sure how long I can stand the hot flushes & complete exhaustion.
