I started out taking Prempro and was experiencing various side effects from that particular drug. Activella has been a very acceptable alternative. I had experienced severe hot flashes, mood swings and vaginal dryness. I feel mostly normal now.

I have been taking Activella for 7 years now. I take the 1mg/0.5mg. So far I'm doing good with this. They came out with a generic, and it mad me feel like I was ready to go nuts. So I'm going back to the brand due to side effects. I'd rather pay more for the brand Activella, than have horrible side effects from the generic.

I want to warn women that Acivella can be a very dangerous drug. I took it for 2 months and developed severely increased allergies, flu symptoms, asthma and the feeling that I was being strangled and suffocated. I also have fibromyalgia that became much more painful. Be very very careful with this drug.

I have been on this medication for several years and it has worked extremely well for me -- no side effects at all. Before I went on it, my main problems were joint pain and just feeling "old." I noticed a difference almost immediately.

Within a week, saw improvements in sleep, vaginal lubrication, and energy. After one year, memory improved.

Been on this medication for about a month a half. I was a mess prior to taking it - crying, night sweats and unable to sleep. The night sweats are completely gone. Still a little moodiness, but very managable. Still having trouble sleeping through the night. Wake at 3 every morning and having trouble falling back asleep. Even with the sleep problem still being an issue, I've been happy with how the medication has worked for me.

First two weeks...Great! No hot flashes, no night sweats, sleeping through the night. Then, 31 days of heavy bleeding started, ankles and feet started swelling, weakness and shortness of breath followed. Had to go off and have no intention of ever trying again.

I don't feel like it is helping with much. I still cry like a river is running out my eyes. I'm a bitch from hell, and i feel like crap. I have tried all over the net to see what the instructions are on taking activella. my pharmacist won't enlighten me, says he has to research it... I know the Dr. gave me instructions but I can't focus long enough to remember them.
