Menopause Home > Delestrogen Medication Information

Delestrogen® (estradiol valerate) is a medicine used to relieve several different menopausal symptoms -- in particular, hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal problems. This product can also help restore hormone deficiencies and work in the treatment of advanced prostate cancer. The drug is typically injected once a month by your healthcare provider.
Most people tolerate Delestrogen well; however, side effects are possible and may include nausea, headaches, and stomach pain. Prior to taking this medication, review information on other side effects and drug interactions with your healthcare provider. This will help ensure a safe, effective treatment process.
