FAQ.  Remifemin® was really helping, but now my symptoms are starting to come back. Can I increase the dosage?

The short answer is yes, you can increase the dosage to 80 mg daily (two tablets in the morning and two tablets in the evening). There is no contraindication if you feel that you need additional support. In clinical trials, there were no differences in side effects when women took 40 mg per day or 80 mg per day.

However, most women notice relief when taking 40 mg (one tablet in the morning and one in the evening), the recommended level. The key is to be patient - benefits can take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks to be fully realized. Also, it’s important to remember that menopause is not marked by a straight decline of estrogen production. There are peaks and valleys, and menopause symptoms may also increase and decrease before disappearing entirely.

Health Information

Menopause is often misused to describe the entire transition from the reproductive years to the non reproductive years. In fact, menopause refers only to the completed state; it is something a woman reaches, not something she "goes through."

Menopause is only one of several stages in the reproductive lives of women. Pre-menopause refers to the entirety of a woman's reproductive life - from first menstruation to menopause. The stage immediately prior to menopause, in which physical changes begin to accelerate, and women are most likely to experience perceptible physical changes due to drops in hormone production.

A woman is considered to be in menopause when she has gone through 12 months without menstruation.

Post menopause obviously, refers to life after the final menstrual period. In short, these stages describe the entirety of a woman's mature life in terms of her reproductive function.

During the change the two female hormones oestrogen and progesterone can fluctuate and have a direct influence on your emotions, sexuality, personality, appearance, even your memory.

Research indicates that a direct synthetic hormonal substitution ie: HRT, is not always necessary for some of these issues, in many cases a natural choice may be preferred.

Remifemin is a natural herbal product used for the relief from hormonal imbalances and menopausal symptoms. It is a remarkable plant extract used by millions of satisfied women around the world.

A product of over 40 years of medical research and international studies. Remifemin has proven to be extremely effective in relieving symptoms experienced during pre/peri-menopause and post menopause.

Remifemin is recognized as one of Germany's foremost natural products made specifically for women's health.

The active ingredients in the Remifemin standardised extract of Black cohosh, could have an effect on the Hypothalamus and Pituitary gland system, which control the hormone production. Remifemin works as a hormone stabiliser, it works with the body to help it to adjust especially during times like peri-menopause and menopause. It is not a dietary supplement but a symptom specific product that works directly on the hormone centre.

How long will it take to see results? As with most treatments the effectiveness can vary from person to person. Some women have experienced excellent results in the first 1 to 2 weeks, whilst others have found more relief after 5 to 6 weeks. However this can vary depending on the circumstances and needs of the individual.

For the best results Remifemin should be taken for at least 8 weeks and then continued if effective.

Frequently Asked Questions about Remifemin

Is Remifemin® safe for women with a history of breast cancer?

Remifemin® is safe for use by women who have had breast cancer. The black cohosh extract used in Remifemin® has been studied closely and found to not have estrogenic effects (in other words, it does not act like the hormone estrogen). Additionally, a pilot study of Remifemin® use in women who had or were being treated for breast cancer found no significant adverse effects. To date, the results have demonstrated that black cohosh safely and effectively reduced hot flashes and night sweats.†

Can I use Remifemin® with other drugs? With hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?

Although no adverse drug interactions have been reported to date, we recommend that, as with any dietary supplement, if you’re taking any prescription drug or any other over-the-counter product, please check with your doctor or pharmacist first before using Remifemin®. Your doctor or pharmacist is the best person to advise you based on your medical history and present state of health.
