Menopause Home > Estratest Tablet Information
Women looking for menopause relief who have not had success with estrogen therapy alone may find Estratest® (esterified estrogens/methyltestosterone) to be beneficial. This combination product contains a mixture of a male and female hormone. Why this combination is better for some women than estrogen alone is not yet clear. In fact, this drug has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yet.
Estratest tablets are generally taken once a day for a specific period of time (for example, three weeks) and then not taken for a week, then another three-week treatment period, followed by a week off, and so on. Prior to taking this product, it's important to review the safety information, especially since it has not been studied by the FDA and may not be appropriate for certain women.
