hot flashes and irratability immediately went away. Only negative was started periods again after one year without,but well worth the tradeoff.

I felt SO MUCH BETTER once I started taking this drug, the night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings went a way. I had energy again, and concentrate on things again.

At 50 - menopause was in full swing. Hot flashes were BRUTAL both day and especially at night. Waking every hour sweating then freezing from being clammy. Feet swell, irritability, mood swings - horrible life. Was adamant that I didn't want to take hormones. Met with my doctor who spent quite a long time discussing the good, bad and ugly of hormones. Explained that I probably wouldn't have to take them forever. Finally, she told me that she had already had her tubes tied and if she had to take a hormone replacement this is the one she would take. Said I could have periods but this should not cause regular monthly cycles. Have been taking for almost 2 weeks and the change is remarkable. Still have some hot flashes but not as severe. Don't plan on taking forever, hope to ween off eventually. If anyone is suffering like I was, PLEASE, PLEASE see your doctor and discuss this treatment.

Started using Angeliq 3 years ago. My hot flashes disappeared, my skin, hair and nails started growing. I had more energy and my mood improved immensly. I stopped using it for 4months and everything went down hill. My hair fell out in chunks and I was so depressed. Started taking it again and I feel fantastic.

I took Angeliq for 3 years and had frequent, excruciating headaches that lasted for up to 3 days and could not be quelled even by Vicodin or muscle relaxers. My doctor thought they were related to a bulging disc in my neck. She and I never associated my headaches with this drug, which did work on the menopausal symptoms for which I was taking it. Four months ago I switched to Combipatch, and I have not had ONE headache since the switch. Now I'm certain my headaches were related to Angeliq.

Comment from: FEELING BETTER, 35-44 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: April 22

I have been on this HRT for 4 months and it has been great!! No hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, and vaginal dryness, all went away after a few weeks. I work out at least 5-6 days a week and have noticed that loosing weight has gotten to be really difficult, especially in the stomach area. I took my pill "LATE" "ONE" day as opposed to taking it early in the morning and boy did I have problems. Night sweats two nights in a row, I didn't sleep well for two nights and the bleeding was horriable. So I learned that you need to take it at the exact same time everyday to get the results you are looking for.
