Is it true that hormone replacement therapy can cause sleeplessness and headaches as side effects?? Is it possible that some women can`t take HRT because of these side effects??? It`s just that I`ve heard that some women feel even worse when put on HRT.
All medications have side effects and they are different for each person. As with all medications, the risks (including side effects) must be weighed against the benefits.
