I am 48 and have already reached menopause: over a year without a period, night sweats, hot flashes, anxiety, weight gain, etc. The worst part of it is the forgetfulness/confusion, irritability/mood swings, (okay, it's more like I grew a 2nd head and started breathing fire!!). And NO SEX DRIVE! (My poor fiancee!)
I don't even recognize myself anymore... I used to be fun, fairly articulate and fit with a healthy libido.
If anyone has any words of wisdom, I'm listeneing ! Thanks, CrazyJane

I am 52 and started having hot flashes (internal power surges as I like to call them) and night sweats about 2 months ago. Read your posts (thank you all) and ordered Menoquil with no problem about a month ago. It took about 10 days for effects to kick in, but there was a significant reduction in the ITP's (interior power surges) and very manageable night sweats. I will say that I take 2 tablets twice a day (morning and night ) and I also take a separate dose of 540 MG's of black Cohosh. Not sure if the combination is why it is working, but I am not going to play around with it. I recently ordered and started my second bottle. I have had no problems ordering the Menoquil on-line, so not sure what the problem is that some of you are having. I also take Vitamin C, Fish Oil and a multivitamin for her with iron. Nothing else.

Hi Anon

Thanks for this testimony, it's always good to hear the positive and negative of a product that many on our site are talking about. I'm glad you are feeling better and are lighting up a room in a good way! 

Best,

Does not work, and caused me to bleed very heavily for the first time ever. Also, they don't honor the money back guarantee. Beware!

OK - I have read everyone's comments. I had a hysterectomy at 52 and at 1yr and 2mos. I started menopause with a fiery. I am on my 3rd bottle of Menoquil and at first I thought it was helping. I take 2 pills at bedtime. My OBGyn also prescribed me an antidepressant and I took 1 pill and had a massive rash the next morning and felt like I had drank a gallon of coffee. The coffee feeling lasted about 3 days and the rash took 2 wks to go away. But it stopped the hot flashes in their tracks. But then I found the menoquil ordered some and like I said thought it was helping but now the hot flashes (night sweats) are back with a lot of sleep deprivation. Some hot flashes occurring during the day but not too bad yet. I refuse to try the antidepressants again and my Dr. doesn't want to put me on hormones which I am ok with. Maybe I need to increase my dosage of Menoquil, I think I can do 2 doses of 2 pills a day. The tea pills don't seem to make any difference. I think I may need to start a multivitamin too but dang I am tired of all this hot flash and not sleeping crap. As far as weight loss the menoquil did nothing for that, and I am sure I am slowly gaining since the menopause symptoms started about a year ago. So it is a crap shoot you just have to try something and if it works great if not move on and try something else. If all else fails go with the prescriptions or suffer.

Same here with the Menoquil. What other supplement are you trying and does it work?

I, too, have been trying to order Menoquil for at least 2 weeks. The website tells me they do not ship to the U.S., which I know they do, and I cannot get a hold of customer service. I just finished the supply I ordered in February, with great results (able to sleep, no night sweats, hair quit falling out, better mood) and would really like to order more. I finally decided to try another supplement while I wait to see what happens with the Menoquil Company. If anyone has further information, please advise!!

I have been trying to order Menoquil from the Healthweb site but I am unable to progress beyond the country selection as the site will not even accept the USA. The site has been down for weeks - Is menoquil still available and if so where can I get it. I am getting desperate. Any help will very much appreciated.

When my mother was 48 she had a massive stroke, which now with all the research that I've done due to my turning into a crazy zombie women that couldn't sleep all night and couldn't stay awake all day along with every other menopausal symptom, hot flashes, weight gain, high blood pressure, mood swings, concentration problems, allergy/stuffy nose, loss of smell and no sex drive. I'm convinced that her medical issues were due to extreme low levels of estrogen, which can cause very serious debilitating if not deadly health conditions. Just like every women does not handle pregnancy the same, they also dont experience menopause the same. Some women fly right by it with only a hot flash here and there and look at you like your a crazy hypochondriac that you think all these ailments are due to menopause. Well Im here to tell you they are! I should have knows that I wouldn't handle menopause well when I had extreme post par tom anxiety with my 2nd and 3rd child to the point of only breathing 30% of my capacity and the doctors said I had asthma.. NOT!! When I turned 48 my blood pressure rose to extreme high stroke danger levels. Of course the doctors just put me on HBP meds and sent me out the door. After much research I made an appointment to have my hormone levels checked, the doctor was baffled and said that he didnt understand how my estrogen level could be this low.. it was -50, which if you do any research on extreme levels of estrogen it causes all kinds of havoc. I thins the blood vessels in your brain and if left untreated can cause strokes, pulmonary brain aneurysms. Menoquil is awesome for the side affects but did nothing for the blood pressure, so I went on the bio-identical replacement therapy and had to go off blood pressure meds within 2 months because it was getting way too low (to my doctors surprise) because when my estrogen level was brought back up it brought the pressure down... My advise to everyone reading this.. listen to your own body, we are all different and quite frankly doctors dont know squat about this unless they specialize in it. Research Research Research, look at all the symptoms that other people have and if you are one of the lucky ones with just a mood swing/hot flash here and there bravo to you and menoquil is your answer! <3

I have tried several menopause supplements, and they seemed to work on some of the symptoms but not all of them. One of my worst problem was the inability to sleep. After taking Menoquil for about 10 days, I slept through the entire night for the first time in almost a year. It's been a month now, and I'm still sleeping soundly. This supplement is a miracle for me, and I also don't have the mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats (but the other supps helped with those). I am 49 and have been having menopause symptoms for 1 1/2 years now.

Hi Sandy!

Thanks for your testimony - we're always happy to know what has or hasn't worked for women.

I'm glad you are feeling a lot better, menopause may be a natural part of life but it isn't an easy one for many. 

Best,

Susan
