Duavee is a drug formulated using conjugated estrogens and bazedoxifene. It is used by women with a uterus to help reduce the intensity of symptoms associated with menopause such as vaginal dryness and hot flashes. It also prevents osteoporosis (bone loss) after menopause. The conjugated estrogens work by helping the body produce less estrogen, thereby dealing with menopausal symptoms while bazedoxifene acts like a selective estrogen receptor modular (SERM).
Duavee (bazedoxifene and conjugated estrogens) is a combination medication that is used in individuals who have reached their menopause stage. It treats various menopause symptoms such as vaginal dryness and hot flashes. It also believed to prevent osteoporosis (bone loss), a condition that is prevalent when a woman reaches menopause. Duavee works by the use of the two medicines forming it. Bazedoxifene blocks the estrogen hormone from reaching certain parts of the uterine lining and thus protecting uterine tissue against overgrowth. Conjugated estrogen increases the amount of estrogen to reduce the symptoms caused estrogen deficiency. Duavee is for short-term use in menopausal individuals and treats moderate to severe symptoms. Do not use this medicine if you have been diagnosed with stroke, blood clot or liver diseases.
