What Pharm. provides Ortho-Est?

Ortho-Est worked perfectly for my body in every way then my my Pharmacy called & said it was no longer available, approx. 2003. Is some mfgr. making this original formula and what pharmacies carry it? It is the ONLY one that worked & restored my health for me. Please HELP? ## I have the same problem as above and am desparate to find a supplier of Ortho-Est. I have not had a nights sleep for 7 months and have spent R6000 on gynea's and other products which do not work. ## Unfortunately, no! It has been discontinued in the U.S. There is, however, another medication available that contains the same active ingredient, it's called Ogen, so you may want to ask your doctor about it. Is there anything else I can help with?

No stock????

I have been using Otho Est for a couple of years now but due to unavailability of stock, I've been without the treatment for about 3 weeks now and have been advised that I should go an see a Doctor in order to get an alternative prescribed. To see a Doctor cost money plus I need to take time off from work to do that. What's the problem, why is there no stock available?
