Elleste Duet Conti Tablets

Hormone levels drop as a woman moves towards the menopause bringing with it several uncomfortable or unpleasant symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings, reduced sex drive, night sweats and vaginal dryness, which can be eased with the use of hormone replacement therapy or HRT.

HRT medications can be used before, during and after the menopause such as Elleste Duet Conti. It works by replacing the two sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone, whose levels drop drastically at this time and it can be highly effective for women suffering from these symptoms.

Can I buy Elleste Duet Conti?

Elleste Duet Conti can be purchased online via Click Pharmacy once you have completed a health questionnaire and had your answers assessed by one of our in-house doctors. If you are approved for treatment, you will be able to purchase it right away and have your tablets sent out to you directly, quickly and discreetly. You can then order again in the future without re-doing the assessment.

If the doctor does not feel this is the correct or most appropriate treatment for you at this time then you can discuss this in a free, online appointment and find another HRT treatment which will be more beneficial.

How effective is Elleste Duet Conti?

For the relief of post-menopausal symptoms, Elleste Duet Conti is designed to be effective even at low doses and can be taken on a short or long term basis depending on a woman’s situation and where she is in her menopause journey. It can also be taken to effectively prevent osteoporosis for women with a heightened risk of fractures if they are unable to take any other form of prevention medication. This can occur as the bone-strengthening and protecting hormone oestrogen decreases during menopause.

The effects of the Elleste Duet Conti tablets kick in relatively quickly with many women experiencing the benefits within just a few weeks.

Why choose Elleste Duet Conti?

For women whose quality of life is being seriously affected by menopausal symptoms, Elleste Duet Conti tablets can play a huge role in helping them feel better again. By replacing the depleted hormones, the medication helps to stop crippling symptoms such as insomnia, headaches, memory loss and more. HRT treatments such as Elleste Duet Conti have also been shown to support menopausal low moods and anxiety.

What is contained in Elleste Duet Conti?

The two active ingredients in Elleste Duet Conti tablets are a natural form of oestrogen called estradiol hemihydrate (previously oestradiol hemihydrate), and a synthetic form of progesterone called norethisterone acetate

The inactive ingredients are:

  • Lactose monohydrate
  • Maize starch
  • Povidone 25
  • Talc (purified)
  • Magnesium stearate.

The ingredients in the film-coating material are:

  • Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (E464)
  • Titanium dioxide (E171)
  • Macrogol 400
  • Black iron oxide (E172)

If you know you are allergic to any of these ingredients then consult your doctor and they can help you in sourcing a safe alternative treatment.

How should I take Elleste Duet Conti?

Take one tablet each day with a drink and either with or without a meal. For the best results, be sure to take the tablet at the same time each day. If you remember to take a missed within 12 hours of when it was to be taken then have it; if you remember within 12 hours of the next dose then wait until then. Do not double up or take two within 12 hours of each other.

You do not need to take breaks between your packs of Elleste Duet Conti but you should get your treatment reviewed at least once a year to ensure you are still using the best form of medication and receiving the greatest benefits from it.

How does Elleste Duet Conti work?

As menopause approaches, the ovaries produce less oestrogen resulting in symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweet, irregular menstruation patterns and vaginal dryness. Estradiol replaces these lost hormones helping to ease these issues.

For women who have not had a hysterectomy, oestrogen causes the growth of the womb lining. If this grows without the progesterone to stop it as it would naturally, the result can be endometrial cancer. To help reduce this risk, progesterone called norethisterone is the second ingredient in this combination treatment.

How long can I take Elleste Duet Conti for?

Elleste Duet Conti can be taken every day continuously though it is highly recommended you still have this reviewed annually at least once with your GP.

  • For the management of menopause, patients will usually be prescribed at least 3 months of treatment.
  • In the case of premature menopause, HRT treatments such as Elleste Duet Conti is recommended until the age of normal menopause and around 5 to 10 years after the age of 50.
  • Perimenopausal women aged around 50+ may be prescribed Elleste Duet Conti for around 5 years for the easing of menopausal symptoms.
