The only thing that I have found that works!
I have had menopausal symptoms now for about two years. I have taken Fusion Menopause on and off over this time and it is the only thing that works for me and almost instantly! I was concerned about the level of black cohosh, so i stopped and tried Flordis Femular Forte for over 2 months but all my symptoms returned and i have had no relief at all with that product. Constant day sweating, relentless night hot flashes and insomnia. I have just started Fusion again and thank goodness, it has worked immediately! I have had to weigh up the risks and benefits of taking it longer term and so have decided to have blood tests every 6 months to check on liver function. My most recent test showed perfect liver function.
Doesn't work for me
After taking my very first pill x1, my period arrived - very bad cramps and 4 full days of VERY heavy flow. Hourly change of pads for those 4 days(not exaggerating). After those 4 days it had eased but lasted for 2 weeks in total. I didn't take anymore pills after that initial 1.
Thought it was just a coincidence so I have tried again 1 month later. Took the pill yesterday afternoon and boom! got up this morning with heavy flow of period AND bad cramps again! Looks like it's not for me.... I believe the Black Cohosh has something to do with it :(
- Short-term physical illness
Worked fantastically but significant side effects
I started taking this for my peri menopause symptoms and it worked brilliantly. However after about 12 weeks I began to experience bleeding between periods. This was significant and continuous. I did some research and found that this was a known side effect of black cohosh. So I had to stop. I've yet to find anything that works as well but the side effect made it impossible for me to use.
- Short-term physical illness
I took the Menopause capsels for about six weeks, two in the morning. I had to do a blood test for other issues and the doctor ordered a liver function test as well. The results were shocking, everything was raised, very very high. I stopped the tablets immediately and had another blood test 10 days later, everything is getting back to normal but very slowly. I would have damaged my liver seriously if I didn't do the blood test. My GP says it comes from the herbs.
Initially sceptical - now I can't live without it
After blood tests last year, I was in menopause at 50. I was prescribed HRT. Even though I've fully researched HRT and the risks involved, I didn't want to go down this path. My main symptoms were bad mood swings, hot flushes and the inability to sleep.
The woman at my local health food store recommended Menopause Free, and with much scepticism, bought it and started taking it. And without word of a lie, I noticed a dramatic difference within a couple of days. I need to take two tables a day, as one isn't enough, and one of the other be...nefits I've noticed is my skin is so much softer now as well. For me this product is a lifesaver, and can't recommend enough. Even my GP, who researched it after I gave him a glowing review on the product, is now recommending Menopause Ease.
After putting up with night sweats for four years resulting in the necessity to,sleep with a towel under me due to saturation, this product stopped it almost completely, and almost immediately. Don't get hot flushes through the day any more either As for other menopause symptoms, it's hard to tell.

I had a blood test recently which confirmed menopause. I am 46. I had been suffering hot flushes at night every two hours and aching joints for about 6 months. I was feeling tired and worn out and finding work difficult. My doctor recommended HRT patches but I was concerned about the risks involved. I did some research on the internet and came across black cohosh. I went to the local health store and was recommended this product. Within 3 days I started to notice the difference. My flushes at night reduced and after the fourth day I slept all n...ight without a single flush. It has been two weeks now and I am sleeping really well, like I used to, have not had a flush and my joints do not ache any more. I feel like my normal happy self now. I am taking one tablet morning and night with meals. I am going to try to cut it down by half in the next few weeks to see if I can get by on a lower dose. I am so glad that I tried this product instead of going straight onto HRT. I know this may not work for everyone but it has definitely worked for me and I would recommend trying it if you suffer hot flushes.
I was recommended this product by my organic store. I was told to be patient and wait for at least a month before I saw any changes. Well since then I can honestly say that I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Brilliant product has ticked all of the boxes for me.
I had tried everything to try to suppress the symptoms of menopause including acupuncture. Nothing worked as effectively as Menopause Free. I wasn't sleeping, flushing pretty much all day, irritable beyond belief. I can now enjoy each day as it comes. I have been using this for 6 months now and I am a new woman. Than you.
Only thing keeping me sane!
I was extremely doubtful that this product would work for me. It does and it's the only thing keeping me sane! So happy I have my daughters on Fusion tablets too. Sounds like an advertisement! I had nothing to loose but horrible debilitating symptoms and now I can function as a human being! It's that good for me! I hope it works for others as well.
I recommend it highly!
Didn't work for me
Suffering hot flushes day and night, so sick of broken sleep every night due to hot flushes. Luckily this is my only symptom but still driving me crazy. Read reviews & thought I would give it a go. Took the whole bottle but sadly no difference for me. Tried 3 different products now and no success yet :(
Questions & Answers
How many tablets are you taking and for how long have you been taking it?
My naturopath recommended i start on the highest dose and work back over a few weeks to see where i get to because my symptoms were severe. I previously got to two tablets a day but stopped because i was worried about liver damange. (see my other review above) I am back on them now at 2 tabs twice a day. I know this is not sustainable as it can cause liver damage. I'm interested to know what dose others are taking without side-effects.
Could you please assist which to take for following symptoms : dry skin, disinterest in making love, mood swings, tiredness, cold, nausea? currently trying menapause free and would like to discern which is best (please note no hot flushes or sleeplessness)
Thank you ...
