Does anyone here take Estratest? If so, have you gained any weight on it? I have gained about 18-20 pounds on this drug. It really is the pits. Finally I've concluded it isn't the psych drugs that I am taking- but ESTRATEST and the surgical menopause. Grrrrr....

Re: Estratest

I think thats what my doctor recommended in patch form for my perimenopause symptoms. It makes you gain weight? OH NO.....

Re: Estratest


Keep in mind that all drugs effect each person differently due to how their bodies react to the different chemicals in their systems. So, you could easily take the Estratest and not gain an ounce. Give it a try and go with an open mind about it. I've been on it for 6 years now, and I think that is too long to have been taking it. My Gynecologist put me on it and wiped his hands of me. He was a real jerk. Did the surgery and 'goodbye'! I dispise the man.... He gave me no direction as to what to do after I began taking the pills, etc. and what to expect, nothing.... I have been oblivious and haven't had a gynecologist since... and will have my first visit with one in September. I can't wait to go because I have a HUGE list of questions and they will probably not like all of the questions I am going to bombard them with. LOL

Hang in there with everything!
