Reviews for Bazedoxifene/conjugated estrogens

Tres · Taken for 1 to 6 months June 25, 2019

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "This helped tremendously with the hot flashes & it kicked in immediately. However, after 4 weeks on this my ankles are now cankles & I'm holding water all over which in turn is causing a ton of joint pain. I was always fairly athletic & edema was never an issue for me until I began taking Duavee. I'm going to see if the doctor can do anything to counter this swelling. If not, I'll have to go off of them because this is like 3rd trimester pregnancy swelling which I just can't handle. Has me sore & achey all over & I'm blown up like a balloon."

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "I love Duavee and have been taking it for about 2 years now. I'm currently 51. I had hot flashes so bad; not just at night but during the day, also. It was life affecting, so I decided to try the Duavee. Took a couple of weeks for it to start working. It also helped with vaginal dryness. My husband said it also helped with my mood, although I don't know if I noticed that too much :) I'm currently weaning myself off, to see if I don't need it any longer. We shall see!"

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "After two doses the horrible hot flashes I was having have gone. I have only been on the duavee for 1 month, but I feel it has changed my life for the better, I am no longer depressed and hate to go places afraid I will have a hot flash and melt down, hair and all. To me its been wonderful so far."

Hot but not in a good way · Taken for 1 to 6 months November 4, 2017

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "I have been suffering with ultra severe hot flashes for the past four years on a round-the-clock basis. In 2014 I tried the Combipatch which helped at first but then it came back with a vengeance. Finally when I couldn’t handle the heat any more I tried Duavee. It took a little while but eventually did do its job at least for the first 20 weeks or so. The heat thankfully stopped but in its place was swelling, high blood pressure, and muscle cramping. The deal breaker came when I had an excruciating MIGRAINE which up until now I’ve never had in my lifetime. I stopped taking Duavee. I coasted on the benefits for a while until the heat worked its way back in to my life. Weight gain, eyes hurt, swelling " · Taken for 6 months to 1 year November 12, 2016

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "While duavee took away my hot flashes after one month-I continued on it for one year and I started having PAINS in my upper right side. Behind my right ribs, just by the Breast area. It continued for a few weeks before I called my doctor and she took me off the duavee I am now on bio identical estrogen gel and progesterone. I have been off of duavee exactly one month today. My pain is GONE. And a bonus is my blood sugars have dropped over 20 pts i have not changed anything other than going off of the duavee my new meds are working great after 3weeks !! No more hot flashes. (I did get them for 3-4 weeks until the new meds took effect."

Becky from Greenacres, FL · Taken for 1 to 6 months May 30, 2016

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "I was having hot flashes at least twice per hour and afer two weeks they were gone. I rarely get one now. I also wasn't sleeping at all, now I sleep like a rock through the night, I was also extremely moody, crying at the drop of a hat, that has decreased by at least 50% now. I've been on Duavee now for about three months. I feel so much better!"

Hot flash queen · Taken for 1 to 2 years April 22, 2016

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "I tried everything. Nothing would work. My doctor recommended Duavee and in 30 days the hot flashes were gone. I averaged 2 hours of interrupted sleep a night. Now sleeping 5-6. Would highly recommend this medication"

New York Nana · Taken for 6 months to 1 year September 24, 2015

Duavee (bazedoxifene / conjugated estrogens): "Nothing else I tried for over a year had worked. I hadn't slept for more than a few hours at a time, which was exacerbating moodiness and memory problems. Three weeks after starting Duavee the hot flashes were completely gone and I was sleeping again! Just to be sure the change was the medication, I tried taking a half dose... And the hot flashes stared up again. Taking the full dose now for 8 months and feel great!"
