Benefits of Tibofem Tablet

In Hormone replacement therapy

Hormone placement therapy (HRT) is a treatment to relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and reduced sex drive. Since menopause can last for several years, this treatment can make a big improvement to your daily life and mood. Estrogen is one of two important hormones (the other is progesterone) used in this treatment. You should use this medicine as it is prescribed, and for as long as it is prescribed by your doctor.

In Post menopausal osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a common condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. It often occurs in women after menopause. Tibofem Tablet helps maintain bone density and reduces your risk of breaking a bone. You should use this medicine as it is prescribed, and for as long as it is prescribed by your doctor.

You can help improve the strength of your bones by doing regular exercise (especially weight-bearing exercise), eating healthy foods containing calcium and Vitamin D, and reducing your consumption of alcohol and tobacco. Supplements of calcium and Vitamin D3 are also effective.
