      Hi Jane Joint Care and Menopace are not our products so you would need to contact them for this advice, sorry.

    Hello Eileen, I'm going through surgical menopause, I'm 50 and aside from all other symptoms, my legs are so painful from the knees down and swelling too. Thanks.

      Hi Lesley Yes, if the night symptoms are the worst then you can take the tablet with your evening meal - it is best taken with food rather than on an empty stomach.

    Hi, I am just so tired all the time, I could sleep all day but as soon as I get to bed cant sleep at all. Tried doing activities during the day, but just want sleep when done. Is this normal?

      Hi Karen, The changing hormones during the menopause can be very demanding on the body so it is important not to do too much. Low iron and low thyroid function can cause fatigue too and your doctor can test for these just to rule them out to clarify this symptoms for you.
