How it works

Duavee (conjugated estrogens / bazedoxifene) is a combination medicine that helps to relieve symptoms of menopause as well as prevent your bones from thinning. The estrogen in the pill replaces the hormone your body loses during menopause. The bazedoxifene helps to boost the effects of the estrogen in some parts of the body and stops it in others to help protect the uterus.
