I started taking after a complete hysterectomy. 1mg a day for a year with the only side effect was a little enlargement of breasts. Then I reduced to 1/2 mg a day for a year. With no issues. But when trying to stopcompletely I experience mood swings and mild hot flashes. I consulted my doctor and I reduced to taking only 1/2 every other day to see how it worked and I have been doing great for me ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on Premarin for several years and my doctor switched me to Estradiol (generic for Estrace) 1.5 mg and I have never felt this good. No more hot flashes, sad moods, headaches, etc. This switch was the best thing that ever happened for me! I know that everyone reacts differently to medication but I would highly recommend Estradiol if you are experiencing issues with your current medication!

Comment:
Took it for 10 years after a complete hysterectomy at 50. No problems other than no recovery of my ability to focus and calculate mathematically, ( I lost that in the operation). Estradiol helped me feel better than I had ever felt in my whole life! Doctor took me off of it 7 years ago I'm now crying and having hot flashes as well as fuzzy thinking. So I'm going Doctor shopping for help to ... Show Full Comment
