How to take it?

Take two capsules each day.

MenoFriend® is most commonly taken in the evening for best results. Take your two capsules each day, together or separately. You can also take your two capsules together in the morning or daytime, or separately twice a day - it's a case of adapting to what works best for you.

How long does it take to work?

On average women will experience at least 10 symptoms of menopause and MenoFriend® relieves all or some symptoms during peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopause for 88% of customers. In a survey of over 700 customers of MenoFriend®, over 80% of respondents said it relieved symptoms within 3-4 weeks.

The time it takes to enjoy relief from symptoms varies by individual for a number of reasons, including the nature of existing symptoms, your stage of menopause, age, weight, diet, exercise, lifestyle and other factors. Don't worry if it takes 5-8 weeks to begin to enjoy relief from your symptoms, this can also be normal - hear from real women who take MenoFriend® in highlights (7 mins) of our Menopause Roundtable, hosted by Sarah Parish.
