Menopause Home > Off-Label and Pediatric Indications for Estratest
Estratest should not be used in children or teens.
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Estratest for something other than menopause. 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 Estratest use.
Some healthcare providers recommend Estratest for postmenopausal women who are experiencing a decreased sex drive, since it contains testosterone. This is also an off-label use for this drug.
