User Comments:

For Hot Flashes “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.”

For Prevention of Osteoporosis “After taking only THIRTEEN tablets of Duavee I had lumps come up on my arm, knee, ankle, and forehead. After numerous doctor visits, calls to Pfizer and FDA, no one has identified what this drug has done to me. The lumps have gotten somewhat smaller over SEVEN months but are still there. NOBODY WILL HELP ME! It was prescribed to help prevent bone loss. I even refused to take it at first but was convinced by doctor to try it.A hormone specialist in Atlanta (when asked by a friend who is a retired doctor) said he has heard of this happening but never seen it firsthand.Can anyone help me with this?”

For Hot Flashes “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 “

Hot but not in a good way (taken for 1 to 6 months) November 4, 2017

For Hot Flashes “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.”
