Ethinyl Estradiol/Norethindrone Acetate (Oral Postmenopausal Replacement)
Some doctors prescribe Norethindrone Acetate to postmenopausal women. These women have lower than average estrogen levels because of menopause. This can cause depression, sexual dysfunction, osteoporosis and other health problems. Taking Norethindrone Acetate can correct the hormonal imbalance and improve the woman’s health.
Women who take this medication need to schedule regular doctor’s appointments so that they can be monitored for signs of cancer or heart disease. This medication can cause endometrial or breast cancer in addition to contributing to heart attacks or strokes. Women who are over the age of 65 may also suffer from dementia if they take this medication.
