ok for age 73

At age 46 I had complete hysterectomy and was prescribed Estratest which I continued to take until age 63. Due to bad publicity for this medication, I informed my primary care dr. that I was not continuing to take it. He did not agree and told me he was making note of "my choice" in my medical history. Now, 10 years later, I am having severe dry eye problems and am allergic to Restasis. No optical meds for relief are available...over the counter eye meds give no relief. My son suggested that I get back on Estratest. Since I have had a complete hysterectomy, and other major medical issues, what is the risk to getting back on Estratest??? ## Hello, Jan! How are you? The risks are the same as always, when using HRT, it can cause blood clots, that could lead to heart attack or strok... ...
