People have too much time on their hands doing these types of studies, of course,IF you are sick you should stay home,whether it's menopause, migrains,flu, chemo,whatever. This is a stupid study that probably cost the dutch a fortune to make. I can't believe they would do an actual study on taking a sick day because of menopause.

The Dutch have the money for these studies because they don't waste resources on wars for no reason and they don't lock up tens of thousands of people for smoking a harmless plant. Holland has always been one of the most prosperous countries in the world with a much higher standard of living than the US!

I don't miss days because of menopause, but I bet my colleagues wish I had some days. :)

I also found out from what-is-transvaginal-mesh-and- what-is-it-used-for/ that menopause may also hold many women vulnerable to varying serious conditions like pelvic organ prolapse. While the problem may be treated through non-surgical options, most women with severe cases often submit themselves to surgery involving bladder mesh implants which have been linked to increasing safety problems lately.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
