Hi been on Elleste for a couple if months now and to start with my nightsweats stopped but now they seem to have returned 😏.

I'm so tired, feel like I've been run over by a bus and when I say bus I mean double decker!!! 🚍🚍

I remember feeling like this last month but at a different time in my hrt.

Does anyone else suffer on Elleste???

    I have found a GOOD quality sage leaf supplement works well for hot flushes/night sweats. Doesn't stop it completely but about 80%cheesygrin

    Hi Karen, sorry you're feeling so miserable, but it sounds to me as if Elleste has stopped working. You should get in contact with your doctor so that she/he can adjust the dose. Nonetheless, when I stopped taking hrt, and I felt like 'you' I took a vitamin for women, and this would remove that feeling of lethargy, I would take it the minute I felt it coming on. So I suggest you get yourself a woman's menopause vegetarian vitamin and start taking it to get rid of that feeling. I still take it once in a while when I feel low in energy and it boosts me up. Also, taking vitamin D3, on a daily basis will also help to curb the mood swings if you're having any. Hope this helps.

    Hi Karen, 

    I had to chop and change HRT medication until I found one that worked without the menopause syptoms returning.   Oestrodose works well for me and you can up the dose yourself if you need.

    What dosage of Elleste are you on?  I started on 1mg, and had the same experience as you after a year or two, so my GP put me on the 2mg Elleste.

      Hi, they put me straight on the 2mg to start with and my nightsweats sweats stopped, I was sleeping better and even had days I was more 'me', had more energy but it's not happened this month and i just feel so tired and tearful.

      Feel like I could sleep for a month!! 😴😴😴. And I'm suppose to go to my second job tonight but I just can't do it, then I won't get paid and it's just going round and round again at the moment.

      That's my moaning, sorry ladies 😢
