Livial is a highly effective oral medication that contains the active ingredient tibolone used to treat the symptoms of the menopause. Tibolone is a synthetic steroid medicine used for the purpose of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This ingredient imitates the actions of the main female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. By replacing the depleted hormone menopause symptoms can be reduced or eradicated.
Particular parts of the body, such as the vagina, bones and breasts, depend on oestrogen to function to their optimum capabilities. In cases where the levels of oestrogen are declining - such as when going through the menopause - these tissues can slowly deteriorate and you may experience uncomfortable symptoms. Moreover, if levels of oestrogen are insignificant, this can evoke stressful symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings or depressive feelings, reduced sex drive and vaginal dryness. Using HRT treatment can help alleviate many unpleasant menopausal symptoms.
Livial can also be used to treat osteoporosis by improving the condition if you already have the condition, or preventing it from occurring during or post-menopause.
You can buy Livial online at euroClinix in doses of 2.5mg in packs of 84.
When women go through the menopause, oestrogen levels drop. This as a result can cause a number of symptoms including hot flushes, vaginal dryness and night sweats. This medicine works as a HRT to replace the low levels of oestrogen and subsequently can help to relieve the symptoms of menopause.
Menopause can also cause fragile bones (osteoporosis), which leads to a higher chance of suffering from bone fractures. When other medications prove unsuitable, this medicine is recommended to help prevent and treat osteoporosis if other treatment has not worked.
This medication contains the active ingredient tibolone, which is a synthetic steroid medicine used in hormonal replacement therapy (HRT). During the menopause, oestrogen levels naturally decrease. Tibolone works by mimicking the activity of the natural female sex hormones found in the body. As a result it helps to restore the balance of the hormones in the body and reduces the symptoms of menopause. This can cause the tissue to deteriorate over time and eventually lead to lack of libido, hot flushes, mood swings and vaginal dryness. For some, the menopause symptoms can interrupt day-to-day life leading to depression. Livial's active ingredient works to replace the oestrogen deficiency alleviating symptoms. It can also be used to reduce the chance of osteoporosis developing and to treat it if it already has.
Livial can generally be used when you start to experience menopausal symptoms, which for most women is between the ages of 40-60, but ideally up until your mid fifties. If you are allergic to tibolone or any of the ingredients found in Livial, then it is highly recommended that you don't take this medication. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding; have a history of breast cancer or cancer of the womb (endometrium); have experienced unexpected vaginal bleeding; have excessive thickening of the womb lining; have suffered with blood clots such as thrombosis; or have a history of angina, heart disease, stroke or liver disease, then you should not take this medication.
Livial is usually not prescribed to women that have had a period in the past 12 months. Taken sooner it can cause irregular bleeding to occur. If you have had your womb removed you should be able to start Livial straight away. To treat menopause symptoms the lowest dose is usual prescribed.
