I'm not finding any evidence that it has been discontinued. Even so there are several brands of conjugated estrogens available.
As of August 2014 cenestin has been discontinued by the manufacturer. However, due to shortages of the synthetic conjugated estrogen used to make the product, there was a shortage earlier this year (for my pharmacy we stopped receiving the product around April). There are however other options out there, you should probably talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have yet to do so. http://www.ashp.org/menu/DrugShortages/CurrentShortages/bulletin.aspx?id=1087
I was just told the same thing by my doctor. I have used Cenestin .625mg for almost 20 years and the last 6 months had to change to .45mg because my pharmacy could not get .625 anymore. I hate that they have discontinued this, I have tried premarin before, bad results and estrodial, terrible results. Guess I have to start from scratch again:(
