Vagifem is a form of estrogen, a female hormone that regulates many functions in the body. This medication is typically prescribed to treat symptoms of menopause including vaginal dryness, irritation, and hot flashes.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions when taking Vagifem. Never change dosage before consulting a healthcare professional.
Vagifem local products may be placed directly into the vagina to treat menopause symptoms including dryness and tissue irritation. Other estrogen products are used to treat systemic symptoms that affect other parts of the body, including hot flashes. Use Vagifem as directed by your doctor to treat your specific symptoms.
Vagifem may increase your chances of developing endometrial cancer (cancer of the uterus). Watch for unusual bleeding and inform your doctor immediately.
Vagifem may also increase your risk of ovarian cancer, stroke, dementia, and blood clots.
When taken with progestin, estrogen products like Vagifem can cause heart disease, stroke, dementia, blood clots, and breast cancer. These risks may depend on how long you use estrogen, and the products should be used for the least amount of time possible.
Vagifem alone does not appear to increase risk of breast cancer when taken for up to 7 years after menopause.
Have regular physical examinations if you take Vagifem for an extended period of time.
Common side effects of Vagifem include:
Nausea and vomiting
Dizziness and headache
Cramps and bloating
Changes in libido
More serious side effects of Vagifem include:
Heart attack symptoms including chest pain, nausea, shortness of breath
Pain and swelling of the stomach
Stroke symptoms including sudden numbness or weakness, problems with vision, speech or balance
What time of day should I use Vagifem?
You can take Vagifem at any time of day that’s convenient for you. Try to take Vagifem at the same time every day.
Will my menopause symptoms go away on their own?
Some menopause symptoms, including hot flashes, are likely to go away on their own. But other symptoms like vaginal dryness may persist due to lack of estrogen. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and how long you should take Vagifem for.
Can I buy Vagifem over the counter?
No. Vagifem is only available with a prescription at this time.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
