Treatment is fine. INDIVIDUAL PACKAGING IS IMPOSSIBLE, Please please make this available in bottles.

This blister pack is the MOST tenacious I have ever experienced, and I urge you to reconsider your packaging options, please.

This is the 2nd time I've tried this in a yr. It's quite pricey even with insurance, however, I found a coupon allowing me to get it for $35, rather than the usual $60 co-pay, so am back on it.

I have been on Osphena 5 months and it's worked wonders. My husband has been very pleased. My special price of $35/month runs out next month so I'm pretty sure the price is going to be too much for my insurance to pay. I'm going to have to enjoy the next 2 months before I have to discontinue.

Comment:
I was thrilled to discover that there was FINALLY something out there for us women who experience extreme pain during sexual intercourse post hysterectomy, due to extreme vaginal dryness! BUT, after being on this medicine for about 6 weeks, I find that the inside of my mouth & tongue became so dry & sticky/pasty feeling (very annoying/uncomfortable), as well as the feeling of fatigue and w ...
