How it Works

About Kliovance

What is Kliovance?

Kliovance is a prescription-only medicine used to treat menopausal women who are experiencing hot flushes and other menopausal symptoms.

How does Kliovance work?

Oestrogen levels in the body drop during menopause. This can lead to symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, a reduced sex drive or vaginal dryness. Kliovance treats these symptoms by replacing the lost oestrogen and balancing your hormone levels.

How long does it take for Kliovance to work?

HRTs work very quickly to relieve symptoms you may be experiencing during the menopause. Most women start to notice an improvement in their symptoms within 10 to 14 days of starting treatment. This will differ from woman to woman. If you’ve been taking Kliovance for over two weeks and notice no difference in your symptoms, talk to your GP.

How effective is Kliovance?

Kliovance is very effective in treating a range of symptoms women experience in the menopause such as hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness, irritability, and depression.

How to use Kliovance

Swallow Kliovance tablets whole with a glass of water, with or without food. It does not matter what time you take your dose, but make sure you take it at the same time every day.

How often should I use Kliovance?

You should take Kliovance once a day. If you forget a dose, you can still take it if it’s been less than 12 hours since you were supposed to take it. If it’s been more than 12 hours since you were supposed to take your dose, skip that dose. Do not take two doses of Kliovance in the same day.

How long do I use Kliovance for?

There’s no limit to how long you can take HRTs like Kliovance, but you should talk to your doctor about how long it is recommended to take Kliovance for. Most women only need to take it for a few years, until their menopause symptoms eventually go away.

Is Kliovance right for me?

Kliovance is an effective HRT, but may not be right for everyone. Certain conditions can interact with Kliovance and make it less effective, or potentially unsafe. Do not take Kliovance if you have, or have had:

  • breast cancer
  • high blood pressure
  • blood clots
  • diabetes
  • gallbladder problems
  • vaginal bleeding
  • liver disease

Kliovance is known to interact with:

  • antidepressants like amitriptyline, butisol
  • hiv medications like atazanavir
  • medicines used to treat epilepsy like carbamazepine
  • St. John’s wort
  • antibiotics like ciprofloxacin or rifampin
  • diltiazem (used to treat high blood pressure)
  • antifungal medicines like fluconazole or itraconazole

Tell your doctor about any medication you are taking before starting your treatment with Kliovance.

Kliovance alternatives

HRT comes in different forms such as gels, tablets and creams. The type of HRT your doctor prescribes will vary depending on if you are postmenopausal, and if you still have a womb. Alternatives to Kliovance include.

  • Vagifem
  • Vagirux
  • Elleste Duet
  • Estriol
  • Ovestin
  • Evorel Conti
  • Premique

Is Kliovance the same as Kliofem?

Kliovance and Kliofem are very similar: they are both oral tablets used to treat symptoms of the menopause with the same type of hormones. However, Kliofem contains double the amount of estradiol and progestogen than Kliovance. This means that Kliofem is much stronger than Kliovance, so you may be prescribed Kliofem if Kliovance doesn’t work for you.
