What is Elleste Solo used for?

Elleste Solo is prescribed to treat the symptoms of the post menopause that are caused by a change in the body’s hormones. Symptoms of the menopause can have a significant effect on your quality of life,[1] so by balancing out the hormones Elleste Solo helps you to get back to being you again. Elleste Solo is only available for women who have had a hysterectomy, unless taken with a separate progesterone treatment.

Can I buy Elleste Solo over the counter?

No. Elleste Solo is a prescription medication, as its use will need monitoring by your clinician. A consultation with a prescriber is important to assess if the treatment is safe for you. It will also allow you to get advice on other aspects of the menopause and how to manage its symptoms.

What you need to know about Elleste Solo

What is Elleste Solo used for?

Elleste Solo is prescribed to treat post menopausal symptoms, such as hot flushes and mood swings.[2] These symptoms usually last around four or five years (sometimes longer),[3] during which time you can balance your body’s hormones with HRT treatments such as Elleste Solo.

It’s only prescribed for women who have had a hysterectomy or when used alongside a separate oral progesterone tablet. If you’ve not had a hysterectomy, there are many other treatments available, including Elleste Duet.

Symptoms of the menopause differ from person to person, including their severity. The most common include: hot flushes, mood changes, night sweats, insomnia, decreased sex drive, UTIs, stiffness, general aches and pains, vaginal dryness, headaches and palpitations.

How Elleste Solo works

The menopause leads to significant changes in the body, mostly brought on by a change in the hormones it produces.[6] HRT replaces these hormones (or in the case of Elleste Solo, just the one hormone) and eases the associated symptoms. It’s not exactly a cure, but it can greatly ease symptoms so this time of life is not so greatly affected.
