    Ingredients contained in the Zalestra formulation, include black cohosh, mega soy extract, DHEA, Indole 3 Carbinol, borage oil and vitex fruit extract.

    black cohosh side effects-
    bradycardia, dizziness, headache, tremors, giddiness
    hepatotoxicity (case report)nausea, vomiting. and it interacts with breast cancer medications

    DHEA is a steroid analog. it is converted in the body to estrogen or androgens. this is the ingredient that is most worrysome. it will bring an increased risk of cardio vascular events such as stroke or heart attack. you may know of the risks associated with hormone replacement therapy (estrogens) in menopause and DHEA would be vary similar.

    As far as the problems with estrogen and cancer the study that scared women (Women's Health Initiative) has reveresed its findings since they were not accurate. So I don't know if you can correlate the use of DHEA to cancer.

    I have used some hormone therapy to help with hot flashes etc. The vivelle dot and prometrium. They did help with my symptoms but I am still having some problems getting this new weight gain off.

    I would like to try the Zalestra but would like to know more about its side effects also.

    Default Menopause

    I have tried Zalestra in the past and it showed a positive impact in loosing my weight.I felt satisfied with that. Weight gain during menopause is quite common and it can be lost by means of Zalestra.

    hi, I think you should try alternative therapies. and also control your food habit to maintain weight.

    I am using Zalestra for hot flash relief and have noticed some positive changes. I can't say it has helped with weight loss as I have only been on it for about two weeks. My question is, will it react with NSAIDs. I need to start taking meloxicam (Mobic) for arthritis and need to know if the two are okay to take together.
