Don't you love Big Pharma? These are the bastards whose product caused my two strokes in the late '90s. Stay the hell away from hormone replacement therapy 'til they manage to make it safer.

HRT drugs aren't entirely useless as they have also been known to work in reducing the risk of osteoporosis in women. However, the risk of heart problems linked to the therapy has reportedly contributed to a substantial decline in its prescriptions. HRT drugs have been replaced by osteoporosis medications in terms of lowering their risk of rapid bone loss but these drugs too have also been linked to serious side effects like femur fractures as I have read at http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net/femur-fracture...

HRT is used to cure menopause problem. But the chemicals or overdose if supplements can cause heart problems. So if problem occurs consult it with doctor.

I believe Premarin has serious side-effects. I don't use it. I use HRT;but,hesitate to make any recommendations.

HRT drugs aren't entirely useless but the window for being ideally prescribed on them is closer to your onset of menopause so it's rather narrow. For those who've had their menopause for a long while now you're less than ideal for HRT. Which means you can be prescibed on them, it's just that you can't be on them for a long period of time. You have to get the right kind of HRT drugs, some of the safest are the supposedly one's where progestin and estrogen were prescribed together. Really there are a lot of important considerations to be made when going on HRT and you just need to be careful when you decide to take them. http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us
