Question

Everol 50

My mom has been on EVEROL 50 for about 12 years and about 3 years ago switched to EVEROL 25. She has heard such bad reports about HRT that she stopped it and started taking Menoclove. She has been taking it for 3 weeks. It is not helping & she is suffering badly with hot flushes &she is not sleeping. How bad is HRT, what are the new findings? What would your recommendation be. She is 63.

HRT is the best for relieving menopausal symptoms. There is a slightly higher risk of breast cancer and, if she has risk factors, a small increase in the risk of strokes. However, as with all medications, she will have to weigh up the risks versus the benefits. It is no use living till 90 and being miserable every day, so it really depends how much the hot flushes affect her life.
