Menopause Home > Pediatric and Off-Label Indications for Covaryx
Covaryx should not be used in children or teens.
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Covaryx for something other than menopause treatment. This is called an "off-label" use. At one point, hormone replacement therapy was used off-label for preventing heart disease and dementia (such as Alzheimer's disease), but these are no longer considered legitimate off-label uses. Sometimes, hormones are used to promote youthfulness. Again, this is not generally accepted as a legitimate off-label Covaryx use.
Some healthcare providers recommend Covaryx for postmenopausal women who are experiencing a decreased sex drive, since it contains testosterone. This is also an off-label use for the drug.
