I have been on this medication for over 25 years after a complete historectomy with no complications. I have tried the generic several times and always have side effects- sleeplessness, forgetfullness, edgy, etc. I just want to know why Ogen was discontinued? Anybody know?

I was prescribed Ogen 0.625mg for relief of hot flashes and sleep disturbance. I don't know how long it is supposed to take for improvement of symptoms, but I have been taking it for 1 1/2 weeks with no relief. I will probably discontinue use due to nausea side effect.

I have been using a .625 generic of Ogen (Watson 414)since it became available. Altho I am 78 years old, hot flashes made my life miserable since a partial hysterectomy many years ago. I have tried to go off of estroget, but day and night flashes return. Benefits outweigh the risks in my opinion. I hope it is not made from pregnant horse urine like Premarin. I object to their vile treatment of horses.

I love ogen. Long after menopause, I started having dreanching night sweats. My doctor prescribed this tiny amount of ogen -Instantly the night sweats disappeared. Since I see no difference at all between generic & name brand, I take the generic. Great benifits, no side effects and inexpencive.

Have taken this medicine for over 20 years until just recently due to the manufacturer's discontinuance. Other generics caused gastrointestinal problems. Ogen is a wonderful drug which caused me no side effects; in fact, it helped my elevated blood pressure.

Ogen is gentle, and after surgery, it provided the necessary balance that I required. I also had the uterus removed along with the ovaries and this medication has been wonderful. I was told that this medication was no longer being made and I wonder why, and also what can I take that is the equivalent.
