I have been taking Estroven for about six years now. All of a sudden I have cataracts in both eyes. Due to St. John's Wort photosensitive properities they may possibily promote cataracts. Anyone else experiencing cataracts after taking Estroven? ## Which formulation have you been taking? There are several available. As to cataracts, I didn't find any reports of it possibly causing them. However, since they are over the counter supplements, they have not been tested, and evaluated by the FDA for any risks, or benefits, as is down with prescription medications. Typically, the only reported side effects are nausea, and dry mouth. You can learn more here about Menopause and possible treatment, and support options.

I recently started menopause, so I bought Estroven for my mood. This is all new to me. Is this something you take every day and for how long? Can Saint John's Wort be used with it? ## It is a supplement product that is claimed, but not proven to help with perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms, including mood changes. It should be taken according to the directions on the package, which the last time I bought it was once daily. The FDA does warn that it may cause nausea and irritability in some people that take it. As to taking it with St. John's Wort, I would suggest not doing so, without first checking with your doctor as it might be contraindicated with some of the ingredients in Estroven. Are you on any medications?

Can I take estrogen with suboxone and lisinopril? Also is it safe after a partial hystorectomy?

Estrogen may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. It may also elevate your blood pressure, so should only be taken with your doctor's approval.

I have seemed to gain weight over the last few months in my belly area. I take estra noreth but would like to take, along with it, the new Estroven Weight Management to possibly help with the weight. Is this possible? I also have RA but have been in remission for over 5 years. Any help would be appreciated. ## Hi, Valerie! How are you? Unfortunately, over the counter products, such as Estroven Weight Management aren't evaluated for safety with prescription drugs. Additionally, on the information page on their website, the manufacturers don't even list all of the exact ingredients, they list some as just being a proprietary blend. However, some weight gain around the belly/hips area can be normal if you're going through perimenopause/menopause and it's usually due to your...
