If bothersome side effects occur, or if your condition does not improve with Delestrogen (estradiol valerate), alternatives to the medication are available. Common alternatives for menopause treatment include coping strategies and natural remedies, such as acupuncture and herbal supplements. Delestrogen alternatives also include other medications, which contain estrogen (and sometimes other hormones).
Alternatives for Delestrogen: An OverviewDelestrogen® (estradiol valerate) is a prescription hormone replacement medication. It is often used for treating menopause symptoms. However, Delestrogen is not suitable for all women. For some women, Delestrogen may not work well; for others, the risks of taking the medication may outweigh the potential benefits. Fortunately, there are several alternatives to Delestrogen for menopause treatment, including:
- Natural remedies
- Other conventional medications
- Coping strategies.
Natural Remedies as Delestrogen Alternatives
Many women choose to use natural remedies as alternatives to prescription medications for menopause treatment. These remedies include:
- Herbal supplements
- Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (also known as natural hormone replacement therapy)
- Phytoestrogens (so-called plant estrogens).
At this time, there is not enough scientific evidence to determine whether these therapies are beneficial. In addition, there is insufficient information available to prove whether these therapies are as safe as or safer than the conventional drugs used for menopause symptoms.
