    I have taken Divigel for about 6 years or more. I'm now 62. I find it's a life saving medication for me. I had zero energy and terrible mood swings during menopause. Also bladder prolapse.

    I'm 68 years old and I have taken Divigel 1mg/dose since about 10 years. It has helped me v.well but after such a long time I tried to stop it with the return of the terrible hot flushes and even a tendency to depression . But I have lowered the daily dosage.
