Tips for Good Reviews
So I just picked this up from the pharmacy very excited as I thought it was a DHEA only product, but when I read the pamphlet, it says that “Prasterone belongs to a class of drugs known as steroids”!!!! Well that’s why everyone feels agitated, irritable and high blood pressure! I personally can not do any steroids or I have ALL of those symptoms! I was very disappointed and will not be using??
I used Intrarosa 6.5mg daily for about 6 months. In the beginning I did get some relief from dryness and irritation of the vagina. After 3 months or so I noticed I was feeling agitated/irritable/ emotional and my (previously non existent) hot flashes became practically constant throughout the day. I figured this was due to menopause and not the Intrarosa. At 6 months I discontinued use after having an episode of dangerously high blood pressure which landed me in the hospital. It has been a month since discontinuing use -- my hot flashes are reduced, the other emotional/ agitated feelings have been eliminated and my blood pressure is back to normal. I don't know for certain that the Intrarosa caused all these problems but I certainly feel better not using it. I am currently using a pea sized dollop of coconut oil daily for vaginal moisturizing and it seems to be working for me.
I used this product everyday for about 6 months. I did get relief from the vaginal discomfort however I found as time went by that my almost non existent hot flashes were becoming very frequent and intense. I began to feel very agitated/ nervous and emotional. I discontinued use when I ended up in the hospital for extremely high blood pressure. Am seeing specialist now for pressure but after having repeat blood tests am returning to "normal" levels of hormones indicated in high blood pressure. I will not use this medication again. The side effects given by company make this sound very safe. Research DHEA use and you will find it is not recommended to use longer than a few months.
I am taking Intrarosa 6.5 MG once daily for burning for a month and 1/2. It worked. It took about two weeks to become affective. The problem is, I don't feel myself – to be more specific I don't feel my "happy, joyful, upbeat, spirited" self. I feel flat, even bad at times?! Even my boyfriend says I don't seem myself. I will not be able to continue taking it because of the emotional effect it had on me and will be searching for other solutions.
This was supposed to have no bad side effects. After one dose, I have experienced the same lousy headache and irritability that occurs with the other products I have tired. The only time I have ever experienced these headaches were when I had to deal with PMS or hormonal medications. If someone does not have a problem with hormonal based medications, maybe it will be useful. As for me, I am not willing to be put through misery again. I think the side effects of aging are less of a burden than trying to "fix" them.
After 3 months I experienced severe mood swings from crying to rage within moments on the same day which could be attributed to a steroid sensitivity. No longer using this medication.
I am a post menopausal woman who used Intrarosa for 21 days. I began experiencing menstrual-type cramps and felt vaginal heaviness. It did not cure my issue with painful intercourse.
