hormone replacement after 60?

I have been wanting to ask this for some time now, so here goes. I just turned 64 as of yesterday.

Now, I went to my new doctor today and I wanted to find out just how long do women take HRT?

I am still taking it, and as she said I am taking the dosage that a 40 yo women with full blown menopause would take!!

She suggested i wean off slowly,and gave me a perscription for a slightly lower dose to take,,,,

No one ever told me that. I just assumed it was for life??

Maybe that will explain a lot of mood swings I am having lately?
