about hormone therapy

My mother had to remove her uterus before her menopause and she started taking the hormone pill "Premarine" . She never had any kind of side effects with that pill. But she stopped taking the pill last year thinking of side effects like breast cancer, heart disease. after stop taking the pill she is having few problems like dizziness, hair loss, tiredness. so is she doing the right thing or she should have continue the pill ?

Dear shaila537:  Whether or not to use or continue using hormone replacement therapy depends upon the age of the person, the health of the person and symptoms that would need to be managed.  It is a decision that should be made after discussion with one's personal physician.
