Information on Tablets A-Z
||BRAND NAME : Activella
CHEMICAL CONTENTS: Estradiol/Norethindrone
These medications are designed for use in hormone replacement therapy. Both combine a form of estrogen with a substance that acts like progesterone. Both relieve the symptoms of menopause, and both are prescribed to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. (Activella is also used for vaginal atrophy.)
Estrogen, when taken by itself, poses an increased risk of uterine cancer. The progestin in these products largely counteracts this effect.
the recommended dose is one tablet of Activella daily.
