Customer Question

Customer: I have been taking Livial for over 10 years - but my doctor has said she will no longer prescribe it for me because of the risks - I am 60 years old weaned myself of the Livial about 3 months ago but I am suffering hot flushes and sweats and bouts of depression - what should I do?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: what do you need to know?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to OB GYN Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: No as I am suffering and need to know what I can do
