I have been taking one double strength tablet daily since April and am now symptom free. Hadn’t slept well for months due to hot flushes prior to this. Would recommend!

No more hot flushes
I started taking Promensil 6 weeks ago. I take 2 a day. Before taking them I was having hot flushes day and night. It was so bad I couldnt get a decent sleep and was having to get up and shower in the middle of the night. About 3 weeks after I started taking them i noticed that I was having fewer hot flushes. After 6 weeks they are completely gone. These pills have literally changed my life. I havent noticed any adverse side effects at this stage and hoping that doesnt change.
Saved my Sanity
I was first introduced to this product by my GP to help with insomnia and hot flashes bought on by menopause. I was also prescribed iron supplements as my low levels could also be an underlying cause of night sweats. Taking double strength once a day, after 10 days I slept through for the first time in 5 years, my mood swings reduced as did my flashes, I felt sane again! Later I switched to HRT which saw the insomnia return and dramatic mood swings so I reverted to Promensil which sorted me out within 10 days again. I have some wight gain around the middle and breasts but not a lot. Very happy and have recommended to friends with much success but it is different for everyone.
- Mild side effects
Zero effect - no change to hot flushes or night sweats
Have been taking these tablets for 5 months now, started single dose - no effect, upped to double dose - no effect. Hot flushes and night sweats still the same as prior to taking Promensil. So disappointing considering the price - which I don't mind paying it they actually worked. Was really hoping these would help me finally get a good nights sleep without night sweats or a day without hot flushes .... but they absolutely had zero effect on me. Would not bother with them again.
I use 1 double strength per day. After six weeks hotflushes and nightsweats are completely gone! No weightgane or any side effects! Very satisfied! I can sleep again! Thank you!

Didn't work for me at all
I tried to use both Promensil and Promensil Double Strength for 6 and 10 weeks and my Night sweats and hot flashes become even worse. While using this product I got insomnia which I never had before. Sorry can't recommend this product .

Works for me
Over the past few of years I have tried many Menopause relief tablets, most of them unfortunately did not seem to work for me. I kept coming back to Promensil (Double Strength).
I have been taking only the Promensil Double Strength tabs for at least 15 months now and found that my hot flushes, night sweats, moodiness etc. had all but disappeared. I thought I'd give myself a break for a while. Well, within a week, my hot flushes and night sweats were back with a vengance, and I found myself irritable and moody all the time. I have just sta...
It Works But...
These tablets worked for me within 3 days the hot flushes stopped and I finally got a good night's sleep and my sexual appetite back. Problem is after 5 weeks they have me thrush. I stopped taking them and within 10 days thrush was gone but hit sweats back and dried up estragene again. I'm going to try them again but this with probiotics.
April 11th 2019 Update: It doesn't last unfortunately
I've been taking Promensil Extra for 7-8 months. Whilst initially this was amazing for stopping my hot flushes and I slept thru the night on only 1 ...tablet a day, I had to increase it to 2 a day about 5 months in. 7-8 months in and now I'm getting hot spells again slowly becoming more frequent. One big thing I noticed was the weight gain. I'm 5'3" and a size 8. Whilst I am 52 and not as toned as I was at 30, now almost overnight I've got a belly and fat around my thighs I've never had. I'm not a big eater and I've been dieting and exercising for the last 8 weeks and nothing's budging. I'm stopping the tablets for now to see if it is these tablets so I'll check in again in 8 weeks and see what my results are. The weight gain is horrible and depressing, I'd rather carry a fan than an extra 6 kilos!

Instead of night sweats, they turned into Tsunamis!
This does not work for me! Gained weight, muscle aches and the night sweats are worse. They usually last about 5 Minutes. Since I use this product they last for about an hour!! They come and go every 5 Minutes! I am not going to finish the package and return to my previous product. I had only bought them, because I was out and they seemed so promising. To bad for the money, since 30 pills cost as much as 60 from my usual product, which is Phyto Confort. Best one for me!!!
BEWARE: This product is not for everyone!!
I am 53yo and am going through menopause. My main issue was night sweats. I had heard from others that it was a fabulous product. I started taking it. Within a very short period of time, approx 24hours, I started experiencing new symptoms. I was not aware at the time that it was due to taking Promensil double strength. I thought the issue was me and menopause....Within 1 week I experienced the following:- My night sweats had been elevated to night tsunamis, I was profoundly 'sad' (something that is not in my character), my scalp became itchy-I ...lost hair (more than normal) I gained 2kgs in 1 week (I don't gain weight) I was anxious and tired and started crying alot (which I kept secret from partner and sister) I made simple mistakes (normally I'm perfect :) ) I really felt blue (I'm pretty balanced). My partner put it together when I lost the plot. I stopped taking it and was back to normal (95%) within 2 weeks. It played havoc with my hormones. PLEASE check your thyroid and your liver function before you start these tablets. DON'T question yourself if there are negative changes-It's not you.
Helps with hot flushes
Takes about 3 weeks to work. First went on regular strength but did not help, then doubled the dosage and hot flushes vanished in about 3 days. Now I'm taking the double strength tablets in mornings. Don't have hot flushes anymore, but am experiencing body aches (mainly around lower back and hips area) when I wake up in morning. During day I don't feel the aches because I'm moving about. Having body aches during sleep is better than having hot flushes all the time. Other than that, no other side effects yet... will wait and see.
Double strength was the answer for me. Minimal hot flushes and heart arrhythmia now - I still kick off blankets in winter but no buckets of sweat. Anxiety and irritability have decreased dramatically.
I tried going off Promensil but all menopausal symptoms came back I love this product. Dont care how much it costs - it's worth it.
Only thing that helped me
I have been in menopause for 9 years - took Bio-identical hormones for 5 years and they worked really well for my night sweats. However, I had to stop after 5 years due to risk of breast cancer in my family. For 2 years I have tried many different things with little / no relief- different types of naturopathic products and acupuncture. I was having severe night sweats where I did not sleep well and it impacted my mood, focus and concentration the next day. It was worse than having a newborn baby! After taking Promensil for 3-4 weeks I had notic...eable decrease in my night sweats from having them every half hour to only a few a night and also a decrease in the severity. I do still have them almost every night but only 1-2 (instead of 8-10) and I don't sweat as much. However, I am now able to sleep much better and feel more rested in the morning. I would recommend trying them. I will keep using them until I have to stop. I am taking the double strength for 3 months.
Effective against hot flushes
Hot flushes were my principal menopausal concern - affecting my confidence to go out, and preventing me from doing any physical activity as the slightest exertion would often put me into a meltdown. I've been taking double strength Promensil (80mg) for three months and find the hot flushes are reduced both in occurrence and severity, to a level I can live with. Also having less problem with night sweats and therefore sleeping better. Skin is less dry. Not noticing any side effects. Can't give full marks due to the expense of these tablets - costs nearly $10/week.
Didn't Do Anything For Me
I was advised by my Endocrinologist to try this product after not being able to go on to HRT due to inherited health risks. After taking the full 30-day course of the double-strength formula, I didn't feel any different at all. In fact, if I took it with my evening meal I started drifting off to sleep about 10pm but then woke up again about 1am & couldn't get back to sleep. Taking it during the day made my insomnia worse as I would wake up not long after about an hour of sleep & then stay wide awake until about 5am.
Unfortunately Promensil ha...
Questions & Answers
I'm 49 years old, with very few minor perimenopausal symptoms at this point. Very regular periods, very healthy lifestyle, nothing too much, except period migraines for about 24 hours that would end when my cycle started. I take good quality supplements, including a calcium with soy recommended for Women of my age. I live in italy and with the virus crisis I could no longer get them, so I spoke to the pharmacist over the phone to see if there was a similar product available here. When i picked it up it was Promensil advanced which didn't seem like my regular supplement (seemed to be for Women in full menopause) but I thought they knew best. I took it every morning for 2.5 weeks, and about a week before my period was due I got terrible breast pain &felt bloated and awful. I thought it was pms but my period never came, (due 2 weeks ago) for the first time ever! (I thought i might be pregnant, but the test said no) I stopped them 2 days ago when I realized, as i felt terrible, want to get back to my natural rythmn, and read that they can cause all these symptoms and irregular periods. I'm really worried because it seemed to push me into starting menopause instead of letting my body adjust naturally. Help! Does anyone else have a similar story? Or offer advice?
Promensil is for women who has full blown menapause symptoms like hot flushes and night sweats. My gynaecologist first put me on a good multivitamin for women when I was your age. (I am also a healthy, exercising 53 year old now). It doesn’t sound as if you need Promensil now....but remember the name....it really works.
The same thing happened to me when I used promensil for a couple of weeks. I barely finished one blister pack -which contains 15 pills- when I realized I didn't get my period! I am 50 and had regular periods before. Since then (few months ago) I kept feeling cramps each month by the time of the period, but never got one!
