Pros and Cons of Duavee

Duavee is a relatively new, progesterone-free type of drug therapy containing oestrogen and a selective oestrogen receptor modulator (SERM). In women who are unable to tolerate the adverse effects of Progesterone, it prevents the endometrium without using Progesterone.

It can take up to a few weeks for any advantages to being felt. Duavee (conjugated estrogens/bazedoxifene) produces a form of the female hormone, oestrogen which is used in the treatment of mild to extreme menopause-related vasomotor symptoms and in the prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women who still have a uterus.

Relevant trials undertaken to date have not shown geriatric-specific issues that would hinder the effectiveness of Duavee® in elderly people. But you should know that it could hurt your unborn baby to use this medication when you are pregnant. It sounds like you once again in your twenties. For mild menopausal symptoms, your prescriber might be prescribed this drug to you.  

Pros and Cons of Duavee

Pros of Duavee:

Duavee addresses menopausal symptoms, vaginal dryness and is licensed for the treatment of Osteoporosis since Bazedoxifene has additional bone effects that also protect the uterus and has a low profile of side effects. Moreover, It is newer kind of daily dose drug that is easy to administer.

Cons of Duavee:

Low risk of leg (Deep Venous Thrombosis) or lung (Pulmonary Embolus) blood clots. The risk of blood clots, rather than breast cancer, is the true risk of HRT. As many know, the possibility of blood clotting exists with any substance containing oestrogen, such as birth control pills. Thus, oestrogen-containing HRT is not a safe choice if you are at risk of blood clots or have cardiovascular disease. For those with a history of breast cancer, uterine cancer, liver disease, or unexplained uterine bleeding, HRT is also not applicable.
