Climaksan is a herbal preparation that is not usually classified as medicine. This medication belongs to the group of homeopathic medicines used in the treatment of disorders of the psycho-emotional nature and the vegetative-vascular system in the female body during the onset of menopause (menopause). Climaksan is not allowed to be taken by men and children.
The tool affects the body of a woman gently, its effect is similar to the action of the hormones of the female reproductive system – estrogens. This effect is provided by the constituent components of the drug, such as: extract of cimicifuga and apis. In menopause, there is a small amount of snake venom, which stimulates the immune system and antioxidant processes.
On the market, you can buy climaxan in two forms: granular or tablet. The color of the pills is white (a pale cream shade may be present). The drug has no smell. In addition to these components, climaxan contains cellulose, potato starch and lactose. The active components of the cimicifuga extract, as well as Apis, when entering the body, affect the molecular structures responsible for the process of interaction with estrogens. The end result of the impact is the correction of hormonal imbalance and replenishment of their deficiency. Climaxan is a remedy that, unlike hormone-based drugs taken for the same purpose, does not have side effects, therefore it is often prescribed for prophylaxis to patients entering the menopausal period. In addition, climaxan can be used for a long period of time.
Analogues of menopause include drugs in which cimicifuga extract serves as an active ingredient, such are: Tsiklim and Klimadinon. There are also many medicines on the market that have other active substances, but have similar anti-climacteric effects, these are: Gormel SN, Klimaktoplan, Beresh, Artemis, Klimara and others.
Indications for use
The main effect of the drug is the relief of symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance in the body of a woman during the onset of postmenopause and menopause. Symptoms can be expressed in the form of: sweating, chronic insomnia, mood swings, heart palpitations, “hot flashes”.
The instructions for the drug are recommended to restore hormonal balance. Contraindications
Climaxan is a drug consisting of natural ingredients, therefore, in medical practice, there are practically no strict contraindications to its use. Perhaps the most serious contraindication can be considered hypersensitivity to any component of the drug itself. Also, a ban on taking the drug was previously noted for men, children, women who are pregnant, and also those with malignant hormone-dependent cysts.
Application and dosage
Only the attending physician should select the system for taking the medication and its dosage. Usually, experts recommend taking climaxan 1 tablet 2 times a day (morning and evening) half an hour before meals. Taking pills should not be combined with food intake. A menopause tablet should be placed under the tongue and sucked until completely dissolved. It is forbidden to chew and immediately swallow the medicine, because the pills will not have any therapeutic effect. Taking the medication for 2 weeks should eliminate the symptoms of menopause completely, but if this does not happen, the doctor increases the dosage to 3-4 doses per day. For a lasting effect, the drug climaxan should be taken for at least 6 months in a row.
All the time of treatment, it is imperative to visit a gynecologist to monitor the dynamics of treatment. The frequency of visiting a doctor should be at least 1 time in two months. In addition, the gynecologist will be able, by monitoring the health of the patient, to adjust the treatment. If, after some time after the course of treatment with menopause, a woman develops a syndrome of the onset of menopause, the course of taking the homeopathic menopause must be resumed, withstanding at least 1 month after stopping the previous treatment.
When taking the medicine in the form of granules, doctors prescribe a treatment regimen: take 5 climaxan granules 2 times a day (morning and evening). The effect of taking the remedy is enhanced if it is used daily at the same time. Granules, like tablets, should be placed under the tongue and sucked until dissolved. Granules are also forbidden to swallow, chew and crack, otherwise the homeopath loses its healing qualities. Menopause will not have any positive effect if you drink it with water or immediately eat.
The duration of treatment with menopause in granular form should not exceed 2 months. You can repeat the course only 2-3 weeks after the previous one.
Side effects or overdose
The homeopathic remedy climaxan has long established itself as a medicine that is perfectly tolerated and, in almost all cases, does not cause any adverse reactions. Patients taking menopause for a long period of time note the effective effect of the drug in almost every case. However, occasionally there are cases of allergic reactions in treated women.
At present, no cases of overdose with menopause have been recorded. It is possible to talk about an overdose when the medication is taken in tablet form, in case of accidental or intentional intake of tablets in an amount exceeding the prescription of the attending physician. Due to an overdose, a woman is able to feel nausea, vomiting, discomfort in the epigastric region, an upset in the intestines. In case of an overdose, the patient’s condition should be immediately normalized by taking tablets that contain a sorbent as the main substance. These are: polysorb, filtrum, polyphepan or activated carbon. Taking a homeopathic medicine should be stopped for a while.
The homeopathic remedy is compatible with all medicines. However, don’t forget about its calming effect. During the period of taking the drug, you should be more careful when driving a car, since the driver’s reaction time increases, although according to the instructions for the medication, it is not forbidden to drive while taking it by mechanical means.
