Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: Betsy

Question:
I am 62, post menopausal and have been diagnsed with vaginal atrophy. I have burning, soreness all around vagina and bladder area. Also intense hot flashes. I am currently receiving accupuncture treatments but no results yet (4 treatments). What do you think of accupuncture? Is there anything I can buy without a prescription that will alleviate this problem? Thank you.

Answer:
Dear Betsy:

Accupuncture may work, time will tell; it can't hurt anything, I do know that.
We have a product called Zestra, and you can review all about it on our website, hit the letter "Z" in the alphabet. It is only a lubricant, and recommended by many doctors, I am not sure how well it will work for actual atrophy though?
My recommendation would be to use our famous Estriol/Testosterone vaginal cream, but it does require a prescription from your doctor. I will tell you the strengths of each ingredient and how to use it, if you decide to try it. Call me on weekdays between 1:00PM and 6:00 PM CST at 1-800-728-0288, and we can talk about it. I am only working afternoons right now, since I am recovering from major back surgery for another week or two. My name is Pete Hueseman. I do know the RX item can help solve the problem quite well. When you call me, please mention your email through power surge and my answer.

Thanks,
