Covaryx Dosing for Menopause
The usual recommended Covaryx dosage for treating menopause symptoms
is one Covaryx tablet or one or two Covaryx H.S. ("half-strength") tablets taken once a day cyclically. This means that the drug is taken daily for three weeks, followed by a one-week break.
If you still have a uterus (you have not had a hysterectomy), you may be prescribed a progestin medication along with Covaryx, since taking estrogen medications without a progestin increases the risk of cancer of the lining of the uterus. Of course, if you no longer have a uterus, you do not need to take a progestin with Covaryx.
