Estrogens B, Conjugated Synthetic (Oral)
Women who are going through menopause or who have completed menopause are often prescribed conjugated synthetic estrogens B. This medication consists of a daily pill that the woman must take at the same time every day in order to maintain the estrogen levels her body needs. The medication protects against osteoporosis as well as reduces hot flashes and mood swings.
Women who are on this medication should get regular cancer screenings. Synthetic estrogen can cause endometrial cancer and breast cancer. Women also should avoid smoking in order to reduce the risk of blood clots, heart attacks and strokes while on this medication.
