Angeliq review by 67 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   menopausal symptoms - hot flashes, sleep disturban
Dosage & duration:   0.5mg drosperanone/1 mg estradiol taken daily for the period of 1.5 years
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   no RX - only multi vitamin/mineral supplement and antioxidant
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Markedly decreased hot flashes, which allowed for better sleep. Reversal of vaginal atrophy symptoms and vaginal dryness, and the accompanying itching and irritation.
Side effects:   I have not experienced any side effects to date.
Comments:   According to my doctor, I am one of the small percentage of women who become more symptomatic as time goes by after menopause. I had stopped hormone replacement therapy after the Women's Health Initiative Study as a result of the negative findings of the Study. Over a period of several years, I was increasingly bothered by the disturbed sleep resulting from hot flashes and the vaginal discomforts mentioned above, and so reluctantly decided to resume taking hormones. The doctor stated that Angeliq provided a low dose and that the progestin was closer to that which our body naturally produces. I took it daily for about a year. For the last six months, I have, with the doctor's approval, decreased use from every night to five nights during the week and none on the week-end. I have not suffered any negative results from the decrease.
