Comment:
I have taken Mimvey for over a year. I have gained close to 30 pounds. I hate the weight gain, my periods have stopped completely, no more hot flashes and I can be extremely mean when provoked. I can't say this is working for me. My Doctor is no help. Says the weight gain is normal at 50. I don't think so.

This medication has worked completely for me, except I have gained so much weight and my hair has fallen out so bad I had to get it cut very short. I feel there should be something better out there. But I don't have any hot flashes.

Comment:
Finally sleeping all night after weeks of waking up 4 to 5 times and not being able to go back to sleep. Has helped in being able to focus and concentrate at work, which was probably due to being sleep deprived. Some headaches and dizziness at first, but that has passed. Feeling a little emotional with some depression still but intend to ask my ob/gyn about this on my next visit.

Comment:
Started med after menopause. Been taking it three+ years and have tried to stop, but hot flashes, night sweats and sleeplessness returned. Much better w meds . I walk 3-4 times a week and watch what I eat as I have Type I diabetes, so I think the weight gain has been marginal. Overall, helps me a lot.

I can sleep finally and hot flashes have stopped. I have gained weight but I feel so much better I guess I would rather be fat and happy.
