Trisequens is a hormone replacement therapy (HRT), also called hormone therapy (TH). It is used to treat menopausal symptoms in women. Trisequens tablets contain estradiol (estrogen) and norethisterone (progestin). These hormones restore the hormonal balance in the body, and therefore reduce the symptoms of menopause. Trisequens is a prescription-only medicine.

What is trisequens?

Trisequens is a sequentially combined hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that is taken every day without interruption. Trisequens is used in postmenopausal women whose last natural period occurred at least 6 months before use.

Trisequens contains 2 hormones, an estrogen (estradiol) and a progestogen (norethisterone acetate). The estradiol in Trisequens is identical to the estradiol produced by a woman's ovaries and is classified as natural estrogen. Norethisterone Acetate is a synthetic progestogen that acts similarly to progesterone, another important female sex hormone.

How does it work?

The active substance, synthetic 17-estradiol, is chemically and biologically identical to human endogenous estradiol. It substitutes the loss of estrogen production in menopausal women and relieves menopausal symptoms. Estrogens prevent bone loss after menopause or ovariectomy.

Norethisterone Acetate

Synthetic progestogen with actions similar to those of progesterone, a natural female sex hormone. Because estrogens promote endometrial growth, estrogens without increasing the risk of hyperplasia and endometrial cancer.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Trisequens uses include being indicated to:

Relieve symptoms that occur after menopause

During menopause, the amount of estrogen produced by a woman's body drops. This can produce symptoms such as heat on the face, neck, and chest ("hot flashes"). Trisequens relieves these symptoms after menopause. You will only be prescribed Trisequens if symptoms seriously hamper your daily life.

Prevent osteoporosis

After menopause, some women may have brittle bones (osteoporosis). You should discuss with your doctor what options are available.

If your risk of fractures due to osteoporosis increases, and there are no other medications that are right for you, you can use Trisequens to prevent osteoporosis after menopause.

The experience in treating elderly women (over 65 years) is limited.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

If you are not switching from another HRT product, you can start treatment with Trisequens any day that suits you. If you are switching from another hormone replacement therapy product, ask your doctor when you should start treatment with Trisequens.

Take one tablet once a day, at about the same time each day.

Each pack contains 28 tablets

  • Days 1 to 12 Take one blue tablet each day for 12 days
  • Days 13-22 Take one white tablet every day for 10 days
  • Days 23-28 Take one red tablet every day for 6 days.

Take the tablet with a glass of water.

When you have finished the container, start a new container to continue the treatment without interruption. You will usually have to bleed similar to menstruation (period) when starting a new container.

Your doctor will attempt to prescribe the lowest effective dose and for the shortest possible time to provide relief from symptoms. Talk to your doctor if you think the dose is excessive or insufficient.

Talk to your doctor if you do not experience relief of symptoms after 3 months of treatment. Treatment should only be continued as long as the benefits outweigh the risks.
