I HAD BEEN TAKING CENESTIN FOR 13 YEARS WITH GREAT RESULTS. THEN I COULD NOT GET IT ANYMORE AND I WAS PUT ON PREMARIN. AFTER ONLY A FEW WEEKS MY HAIR WAS FALLING OUT, BRITTLE NAILS, 7/24 HEARTBURN SO I HAD TO TAKE PRILOSEC. I STOPPED THE PREMARIN AND NOW HAVE HOT FLASHES ALL THE TIME. WISH THEY WOULD BRING IT BACK AGAIN.

I've used Cenestin .625 since 1999 and have loved it. I've felt great! I just found out today that the manufacturer Teva is no longer making it. I'm not sure what I'm going to do now. I hope there's something else out there that gives me the same benefits.

Comment:
Had a complete hysterectomy in 2001. Dr. prescribed cenestin and I was on it for 7 years. Maybe it worked for hot flashes, etc. however, I wish I would have never heard of this drug because in 2008, with no symptoms or problems that I knew of, I had a CAT scan for another issue and a tumor was found on my pelvic wall which was approx. 5 inches mass. Had two major surgeries after I was diagnosed wi ... Show Full Comment
