What is Kliovance?
Kliovance is used as a hormone replacement supplement for menopausal women who suffer from falling levels of estrogen and the symptoms caused by this, such as vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, and hot flushes. This type of treatment, known as HRT (hormone replacement therapy), is generally only used for short term relief from menopausal symptoms. It can also be used to help reduce the risk of bone fracture for women suffering from osteoporosis.
How is Kliovance used?
Kliovance should be taken only as directed by your health care provider. One tablet is usually taken daily with a glass of water to wash it down. For best results, dosing should be done as close to the same time each day as possible. It is important to stick to your course of medication and not miss any dosing. Patients who wish to stop taking this medication are advised to consult their health care provider to discuss the effects of stopping the treatment, and the best method to go about doing it.
