Activella Menopause Support Conclusion
After reviewing information regarding Activella, several elements have arisen which should be of concern to those considering this product. The first element of concern is the medication’s benefits. While Activella does help to relieve hot flashes and vaginal discomfort, there are many other symptoms which Activella may not be able to relieve such as mood swings and fatigue. Because Activella does not provide complete relief, many symptoms will go untouched thus leaving many women with remaining discomforts that could inhibit normal activity.
A second concern of using Activella is the rather long list of side effects. Many of these side effects could be quite detrimental. The risks of this product may not outweigh the benefits.
