Menopause Home > Treatment Instructions for Ogen

When and How to Use It

General considerations for when and how to use Ogen include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
     
  • You can take it with or without food. If the drug bothers your stomach, try taking it with food (some women find estrogens to be irritating to the stomach).
     
  • The medicine is usually taken cyclically, with periodic breaks every once in a while, to allow for period-like bleeding. Your healthcare provider will help you decide exactly how to take Ogen.
     
  • It does not matter what time of day you take it, although it is best to take the medication at the same time each day.
     
  • The tablets can be broken in half, if necessary, to achieve the right dose.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
     

Dosing Information for Ogen

The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition being treated
  • How you respond to Ogen
  • Whether you have had a hysterectomy
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
