Frequently Asked Questions
Why does Remifemin contain lactose? What is the actual lactose (milk) content?
The lactose monohydrate utilized in Remifemin is a pharmaceutical grade excipient. This ingredient serves many functional purposes in tablet dosage forms including: improving uniformity, tablet binding and compression, and aiding in disintegration.1,2
The exact amount of lactose in Remifemin is proprietary. However, because of the small dosage size, the lactose content is very low. In fact, when compared to common dairy products, one Remifemin tablet contains less lactose than a spoonful of plain low-fat yogurt or less than a sip of reduced fat milk.2-4
Is Remifemin® safe for women with a history of breast cancer?
Remifemin® is safe for use by women who have had breast cancer. The black cohosh extract used in Remifemin® has been studied closely and found to not have estrogenic effects (in other words, it does not act like the hormone estrogen). Additionally, a pilot study of Remifemin® use in women who had or were being treated for breast cancer found no significant adverse effects. To date, the results have demonstrated that black cohosh safely and effectively reduced hot flashes and night sweats.
Remifemin® was really helping, but now my symptoms are starting to come back. Can I increase the dosage?
Taking 3 tablets twice daily has been shown to be as safe as taking one tablet twice daily, however, because each woman's health status is unique, we recommend that you consult with your doctor about whether or not you should take more than the recommended daily amount.
How soon will I notice results?
Use Remifemin® for at least 8 weeks before deciding whether or not it works for you.
Remember, Remifemin® is a natural supplement. It may take time to catch up to your body’s natural cycles. You may notice improvements relatively quickly, but for some, it can take up to 12 weeks to experience the full benefits.*
How do I know Remifemin® is safe?
For nearly 50 years, Remifemin® has been tested in clinical trials. No drug interactions have been observed, and adverse events have been limited to mild-and quickly passing-stomach upset. And remember, over 1.5 million women have taken Remifemin® since it was introduced, and more than a billion tablets have been sold around the world.
How is Remifemin® different from other black cohosh products?
The RemiSure™ black cohosh in Remifemin® is an isopropanolic extract. This yields a more complete spectrum of compounds than black cohosh produced by other extraction methods. It is also the most clinically studied form of black cohosh, with over 90 published trials and research papers.
Should I take Remifemin® with food or on an empty stomach?
It’s up to you - whether you take Remifemin® with or without food is a matter of personal preference and convenience. It can be taken before, with, or between meals and won’t impact the effectiveness of the product.
