Menopause Home > More Information on Jinteli
How Does Jinteli Work?Jinteli contains an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol), along with a progestin hormone (norethindrone). It helps to relieve menopausal symptoms by replacing the estrogen that the ovaries no longer produce. Because estrogen helps to keep the bones strong, the decrease in estrogen during menopause causes a significant weakening of the bones, often resulting in osteoporosis. By providing estrogen, Jinteli can help prevent these menopause-related bone changes.
When and How to Use ItSome general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Jinteli include the following:
- The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day, every day.
- It does not matter what time of day you take Jinteli, although it is best to take it at the same time each day.
- You can take Jinteli with food or on an empty stomach. If the medication bothers your stomach, as estrogen medications sometimes do, try taking it with food.
- For Jinteli to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
Dosing InformationThe dose of Jinteli your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- How you respond to Jinteli
- The severity of your menopause symptoms
- Other medical conditions you may have.
