I took this to stop my hot flushes which i have been having for 15 years. This did not relieve my hot flushes or even slow them. I took the tablets three times daily? I not notice any difference in my menopausal state.
Purchased in March 2020 for A$23.00.
Assisted with the start of hot flushes
I have not yet been diagnosed as peri-menopausal but I must be getting close (54 soon). I started getting hotter body temperature wise this summer and I have noticed hot flushes start during the last 3 weeks. I also move from one side of the bed to the other during the night trying to find a cool spot to continue sleeping.
I started these tablets about 4 days ago and I'm taking 1 in the morning and 1 at night. My hot flushes were about 4 to 5 a day without the sweaty face (thank God) but sine the tablets I think I've only had 2.
I am also ...sleeping better at night. I still stir but not to the extent that I was of tossing and turning to different parts of the bed. If everything keeps going this way I'll stay on them as in just a few days they've made a change for me. I got a packet of 200 on special luckily - $29.99 from Chemist Warehouse (a saving of $24.95 apparently).
Hot flushes gone
My mom in Germany recommended this product and I am glad I found it here in Australia, too. I was suffering from severe hot flushes, 20-30 times a day, and cause for sleepless nights. I still can’t believe they are GONE and it is such a relief as it really affected my wellbeing. It took almost exactly 4 weeks till it kicked in, definitely worth trying!!!!

Amazing!! Flushes gone in 3 weeks
I started to see a reduction in hot flushes after week 1, then by week 3 gone completely, amazing!! I take one tablet in the morning and one late afternoon, I found if I took it too late I had weird dreams. This product has made a massive difference to my days. I’m still kept awake periodically at night from menopausal itching!!! Take this consistently and I’m sure it’ll work for anyone.
Relief from hot flushes
Im 55 & suddenly hot flashes started. Waking me up 3-4x. Then they started during the day. I took 2 morning & night. Felt slight deterioration after first night then a week later had no flashes during day. Woke to pee twice with very mild flashes only.created gas so ive dropped it back to one pill am & pm. Thrilled with the results.
A wk later my libido rose. A wonderful bonus. A wk later & im sleeping the entire night.

I came off HRT when Remifemin was recommended to me.
Unfortunately after two months and upping the dose to 3 a day I have not seen an improvement. In fact the last week has seen my hot flushes and sweats becoming more regular and much stronger. I'm going back to HRT with a heavy heart.
Worked straight away
I work in the healthcare industry and usually turn my nose up at herbal remedies. For the last year I have been experiencing symptoms of menopause most notably night sweats where I have had to get up and change drenched pj’s and pillowcase. I also suffer from heart palpitations, irritability, anxiety and headaches. I didn’t want to start HRT so decided try Remifemin never thinking they’d actually work. After a week of use I haven’t had any night sweats, have slept for a full 6 hours before waking and have noticed that my usual monthly migraine has not happened. I doubt this is a placebo affect as I wasn’t expecting much in the first place. Definitely give them a go if you experience these symptoms.

I’m 47 and I’ve been tolerating peri menopausal symptoms for quite a few years now (night sweats around my cycle, heart palps, anxiety etc) but about 2 months ago they suddenly got ten times worse to the point where it was greatly affecting my quality of life!! 3-4 sweats a night (and terrible sleep!) and similar during the day, plus anxiety etc. So I decided to finally start trying Remifem. Amazing!! I reckon it took about 5-10 days to work for me. I’ve only been on it for a month (1x morning and night) and I feel like a new person. The most ...noticeable differences are: Improved sleep (straight 6 hrs instead of waking up every 2 hrs) Headaches and brain fog have disappeared No more night sweats Hot flushes almost non existent No more anxiety /irritability Greatly reduced bloating/ gas/ digestive issues My skin appears to have improved as well (back and shoulder blemishes have gone) Heart palpitations have settled I hope it keeps working for me because I feel great!!
Took 3 weeks to kick in, BUT WOW!!!
Like my title says, it took a while to work, but once it did, WOW!! - I've gone from 12-20 severe hot flushes a day to maybe 1 or 2 barely noticeable ones!!
I'm 52, and about a month ago, the hot flushes arrived...with gusto.
I was getting them every hour or so, 24 hrs a day. Thankfully, I hadn't began to experience much depression or change in mood yet, apart from the dreaded realisation that this debilitating spontaneous combustion could now be part of my daily life for several years! I was dreading going to bed, even though I was com...
What a relief..
Going through menopause without taking HRT was my own choice, I suffered with very bad insomnia, only getting about 2 to 3 hours sleep, with hot flashes constantly throughout the day and night was debilitating, I was irritable, moody and felt as if I was going insane, I'm a runner and run 5kms every day and this was not helping me sleep, I tried other products and nothing worked at all, I decided to give Remifemin a go and see if they helped, I started taking 2 in the morning and 1 at night, have been taking them now for almost 3 weeks, I have...noticed that my sleep pattern has improved greatly, I'm now sleeping about 6 hours every night and my hot flashes have decreased by half, I'm delighted, what a game changer, I feel much happier in myself and have so much more energy, wish I had found these earlier.
I feel human again
I started taking Remifemin two weeks ago after having my ovaries hypofunction after a hysterectomy. The night sweats, sleeplessness, anxiety and tears made me feel like life had instantly become a nightmare. Within three days of taking it I noticed no night sweats and the anxiety wasnt as intense.
By the beginning of week two I was sleeping 6 hours, a major plus on the two hours I was having prior. I also noticed emotionally I felt better than I have in months. So happy my GP recommended this product to me
Really worth a try
I actually felt instant relief from hot flushes. I take remifemin plus one in the morning and one at nighttime. During the day they were very effective, but I found that night just not enough relief, though still better than not taking. But for me getting through a day at work without horrible hot flushes was great. Definitely worth trying this product.
Best product ever
This stuff is awesome. I was waking in the middle of the night with hot flushes and my sleep was broken. After taking this product for a week I haven't had ANY more hot flushes at all. My sleep still isnt the greatest but not waking to a hot flush is so good. I will continue to take this product while it continues to work.
Worth a go!
I am just now 50, and having gone through Menopause with HRT for the last 5 years, believed I was finished. Then about 6-months after finishing the HRT, it all came back. The constant tears, sleepless nights with night sweats, multiple hot flushes throughout the day. I have just started a new job and was terrified I would lose it due to the emotions. Tried Remifemin, 1 tablet, twice daily. Been on it only a week and already the symptoms are starting to ease, the most noticeable is sleeping all night and no more tears. Hoping it will last so I do not have to go back on HRT. Fingers crossed!!!
Changed my life (and others around me) !
I am currently in the early stages of early menopause suffering night sweats, grumpiness and generally feeling like crap.
Read up on Remifemin and after taking it for 2 weeks I started to feel better. Night sweats has ceased and my general outlook felt much sunnier.
I have been taking Remifemin for about 3 months and I feel fabulous :)
It worked a treat for me. Highly recommended !
UPDATE November, 2018:
I have now been taking Remifemin for approximately 9 months and I feel GREAT ! I did stop taking it for a week about 2 months ago ...
Back to normal!
I am 49 and have suffered 12 months of debilitating dizziness and balance issues. I had not had a day off work in five years prior, and I was very active and fit. The dizziness was constant and debilitating, I had to take 3 months off work and gym, feeling too ill and fatigued. I saw my GP multiple times, a vestibular physio and a top migraine neurologist, I tied a few migraine meds and vestibular exercises, which only resulted in feeling worse. I felt hopeless and emotional and began to think I’d never shake the dizziness and fatigue. I’d alwa...ys been such a high energy girl. Finally after 11 months I decided to try Remifemin after going some reading and having a colleague recommend it. I started with one tablet twice a day but increased to two tablets twice a day and after 4 weeks I just can believe how much better I’m feeling. The dizziness has lifted and my energy levels are returning. I’m getting my mojo back and feeling amazing. Fingers crossed this continues. I’ve expedited no side effects Amazing! I’m so grateful
Remifemin made me smile again....
I WAS suffering terrible hot flushes several times a day. The only way i could cool off was to lay on the tiles..just like the dogs do when they are hot. A friend recommended remifemin so l decided to give it a try....Best thing ever. The tablets took about 3 weeks to work but yeeha...no more hot flushes! I definately recommend it!
I'm back to my old self again
I've been taking remifemin now for over 4 years now and I will never stop taking them. I was recommended to try remifemin by my chemist after my doctor said that I was starting pre-menopause and I was getting hot sweats etc. I wasn't sure it would work at all but to my surprise it did and pretty much in the first week. I take 2 tablets in the morning and 2 in the evening and since then haven't had anymore menopause symptoms at all. I highly recommend this product.
Questions & Answers
I accidentally took a Remifemintablet twice this morning - should I still take one that night..? or skip the evening dose? thanks
