Osphena usage and efficacy

I have taken Osphena for 7 years already due to a lot of anxiety and now some mild discomfort in my lower pelvis region, along with burning which I have had. I think I have to stop this pill. Has anyone else had this experience? ## Why do you think you have to stop it? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, administration site irritation, vaginal discharge, vaginal bleeding, and cough. However, this medication does nothing to help with anxiety. Why was it prescribed? Are you on any other medications?

oblong white pill 60 on one side blank other

It is an estrogen receptor modulator, it's used to alleviate pain during intercourse in menopausal women. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, anxiety, double vision and fainting, as listed by the FDA. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It's more oval than oblong, does that make a difference? ## B H on one side blank on the other is 500mg acetaminophen

The cost is prohibitive yet and don't ask me why but if you have private insurance even though they won't cover the drug Osphena offers DEEP discounts. If however you have Medicare or Medicaid you don't qualify for any discounts EVEN though we would ALL be willing to pay out of pocket if it works. I speak from experience. I can't try it under the same DEEP discount???? What women over 65 don't enjoy having intercourse?? Or disabled women?? If it worked I would be willing to pay the 177. per month so why can't I get the same benefits???? ## Hello, Luanne! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you've run into. However, that limitation is not actually one imposed by the manufacturers, but by t...
