Ogen HRT Information
As a type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), Ogen® (estropipate) is approved for a number of uses, including:
- Treating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, or vaginal dryness
- Preventing osteoporosis in postmenopausal women
- Replacing hormones in younger women whose ovaries do not produce enough estrogen or who have had their ovaries removed.
The medication is typically taken once a day. Nausea, headaches, and vaginal bleeding are some of the most commonly reported side effects; however, most women tolerate it well.
Before starting treatment, it's important to review Ogen's safety information. This medication may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have any other medical condition, such as high blood pressure or heart disease, or are taking any other type of medicine, including nonprescription products, herbal supplements, or vitamins.
