For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I am 55 years old and went through menapause 2 years ago. I have still got my uterus and after my yearly visit to my gynae he decided to put me on Angeliq for my hot flushes. After taking them for 3 weeks and noticing absolutely no change, started a period which lasted for 9 days (haven't had a period in 2 years). After the bleeding stopped I started with nausea and severe cramping. Phoned the gynae's rooms and was told it's normal and to carry on with the pills but the cramping has got progressively worse so have stopped taking them. I am petrified to try anything else!!!"

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I am 59 years old. I had all the symptoms of menopause from dryness to night sweats , insomnia, mood swings etc.. I started taking Angeliq nad now feel like I did when I was 25. I have been on it for 12 years and have never experienced the side effects mentioned. However more recently I am experiencing a strange prickly pain in my heart.. I am hoping its not serious. Quite honestly I am actually afraid to get it checked as i am afraid the doctor might ask me to stop my angelic intake. Sincerely I will never ever be able to stop taking them. I will be miserable without them. They are my happy pills."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I went through an early menopause in my 49's and my gyn prescribed Angeliq. The only dose it came in then was .5/1. Now 10 years later I am going through menopause a 2nd time. Lucky me. My primary care tried me on multiple medications - none of which relieved my symptoms and all but 1 made me sick. Long start short I started taking the low dose version yesterday and I'm hopeful. Think I feel better already, but that could be wishful thinking. I remember feeling like myself again after about a week. I took Angeliq for about 4 years with no side effects."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I ve been on angeliq for 6 weeks only. It has already helped with my mood swings and sweats however since the second week of taking it I started spotting and this has increased so much that it is clothing and i ended up in emergency with severe bleeding, flooding. I ve been told to keep on this for another week with tablets to help reduce the bleeding . These are not doing much. I notice that when I ve taken a tablet of hrt I then get cramping and then I flood. So obviously not good. Anyone else had this?"

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "Helps with hot flashes and night sweats but I've put on 8 pounds- in 3 weeks - freaking me out anyone else having this issue? I'm hoping it will level out and I'll go back to my normal weight, I'm small framed person and never had this happen so quickly- nothing fits me!"

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "Been on Angeliq for 2 years now All hot flushes disappeared within 3 days! Hallelujah feel human again!!!! Felt great for a year lots of energy only problem was my breasts went up 2 cup sizes! I then decided to take half a tablet and after a month my breast reduced back to normal! ....For the second year I found I had vertigo! Also I felt a shaking inside my body like I had swallowed a mobile phone on vibrate the doctor said it could be anxiety which comes with the menopause! Vertigo is one of the rare side effects with Angelic so asking my doctor to find a low dose of another Hrt hope this works! Will let you know later how this works out!"

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I have been on angeliq for about two years. I have picked up about 12 kg of weight in this short time and I barely eat anything. I still get hot flushes, mainly first thing in the morning. I am suffering from IBS since starting this treatment and I am bloated, constipated and dreadfully uncomfortable. I have bad water retention. My body aches perpetually and I generally feel exhausted and miserable. My hair is falling out by the bucket loads. There must be a better way. I have always been very slim before and could eat mountains of food without putting on any weight at all. This is now affecting my self esteem."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I am 53 years old and have all the menopausal symptoms. My life was a living hell. I went to my MD and she recommended Angeliq for a period of 6 months. I believe it took about 3 weeks to really work into my system and has been doing wonders from severe hot flashes to almost none. I sleep pretty comfortably now. The only discomfort I had was breasts that weight a ton for a while but I am OK now. I believe I will use it for another six months and then consult my MD again. It is really a great drug."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I have just about menopausal symtom listed and it makes my life extremely difficult. Sweats, mood changes, muscle pains, depression, general irritability, you name it, I have it. I was on Angeliq for 2 months and felt tremendous relief after 15 days. I did a BP checkup once and had a slightly increased BP (140/100), got afraid and stopped (BP could have gone up for 1000 various reasons, right). All the symptoms came vack within 5 days, with vengeance. I have been consuming large amounts of soy, macca powder, linseed oil, as well as started raw food diet. Nothing helped, not even a slight bit. I decided to go back on Angeliq as soon as possible, my checkup is OK Really helpful medication"

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "Have taken Angeliq for 4 years, and feel very well. Has eliminated dryness and mood swings, also great improvement, hair, nails etc. No weight gain, but slightly painful breasts during initial months, but now okay. Would recommend this hormone replacement therapy. Had tried others eg.Femoston, Livial and Estrocombi but this is the best of all and will keep taking for as long as possible."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I am 53, I suffered from insomnia, anxiety, heart palpitation, bloating for years before my family Doctor put me on Angeliq four yrs. ago. It took over six months before I started to feel the difference. I have been a normal person now leading a normal life, my family can't believe the difference in me. It has been a blessing."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I am 54 and have used Angeliq for several years with good results, although for me it was more effective for hot flashes in combination with Lexapro. I am happy to see they approved Angeliq in a lower dose and will be moving to the lower dose formulation. It is expensive, however, and I am annoyed that it is not available in 'refills' for the leather packet it comes in -- it is such a waste of packaging to receive a new leather packet in each refill and I am sure that inflates the cost."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I took Angeliq for 2 1/2 years. It was great. All of a sudden I became numb on the left side of my face, left arm, and sometimes my left leg. My left ear started ringing and my head was buzzing. I also started having memory loss and confusion. I went to my gynecologist and told him the warning on the medicine was exactly what I was feeling and he didn't seem to understand. He had my blood drawn for estradiol and Lyden Factor. I finally I started bleeding vaginally. I immediately stopped the Angeliq. In a few days all the symptoms were gone except the ringing and buzzing in my ears. At the same time I was sick from all this, my thyroid became overactive, my cholesterol went up 40 points (all in 2 months). I still have loud buzzing in my head."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I've tried 2 other medicines (Pempro & Femhrt) to relieve my hot flashes. Angeliq is the best. It did take a bit longer to start working, but once it started working I feel great. No weight gain associated with this medicine, unlike the other 2. Energy level has also improved. "

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I am on Day 6 on this medication and have to say that I am not finding any difference in hot flashes, low mood and very low energy. It may be too early, but I'm hopeful."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "Well it changed my life. I was only 43 and everything was on a down hill, the hot flushes and mood swings unbearable. but two weeks into using Angeliq hot flushes were gone, I was full of energy, 4 kilos lighter not sure if it is Angeliq but I have been taking it for three years and I'm happy. All vaginal problems and water infections, which is down to menopause, gone totally."
