Comment:
Started Activella early in menopause and have had NO adverse symptoms. However, experiencing drop in libido, and my husband and I are both upset about it. But sex is great once he "warms me up"! Anyone else experience libido problems? Doctor says that has nothing to do with menopause/HRT but things I read online seem to differ.

I have taken Activella for 3 months. I drive alot about 180 miles every 2 weeks. I've noticed that it has made me very nervous when I drive a distance and also it makes my vision somewhat blurred. Had to stop taking it.

My night sweats dissappeared but so did my sex drive. I smoke and never thought much about the smoking warnings associated with this drug. Please stop smoking if you are taking this drug.

Comment:
I have been very leery about taking a HR, but couldn't deal with waking up 6x per night and the emotional highs and lows. Honestly after the 1st night I felt a difference.
