I have been taking Remifemin for 3 days - 1 x am and 1 x pm.

Customer Question
I have been taking...

I have been taking Remifemin for 3 days - 1 x am and 1 x pm. I have almost fallen over when I stand up and feel sick to my stomach all the time. I have ringing in my ears and the dizziness is much worse today than yesterday. I did not take my dose this morning because I figured the Remifemin was the issue - can it really effect you this drastically in such a shor tperiod of time?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take vitamins and 25mg Chlorthalid for high blood pressure

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am 5'3" and weight 210 - I have a very sedintary job and A LOT of stress

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. It sounds like you are having side effects due to the black cohosh in the Remifemin. This can occur even after one dose. I would stop taking it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
