delestrogen
(Estradiol Valerate)

Delestrogen is a type of hormone therapy which treats symptoms related to menopause, including hot flashes and vaginal problems such as dryness, itching or burning. The generic name for this drug is estradiol valerate. These symptoms are caused by a reduction in levels of estrogen, the female hormone which is necessary for many processes within the body. Delestrogen contains synthetic estrogen which mimics the effect of the natural hormone. Delestrogen should only be used cyclically, for short-term treatment as it can increase the risk of breast cancer and cancer of the uterus. Delestrogen 0.75 mg is inexpensive, costing around $30 for a supply of 30 tablets. Fortunately, you can save money on your prescription with our Delestrogen discount - we provide free Delestrogen coupons and savings cards. Our Delestrogen savings cards are ready to use today, and they do not expire. Delestrogen is a brand name drug, and the generic alternative is named esterified estrogens.
