Pharmacy Questions? Ask a Pharmacist Online.
Hi! I'm Dr. Bridget, a certified geriatric pharmacist.
Yes, there are some other options that you can try that may have a more favorable side effect profile. If you are using it to relieve menopausal symptoms, substituting Paroxetine (brand names Brisdelle or Paxil CR) for Estradiol may be an option. This medication is FDA indicated to treat menopausal symptoms, but is not a hormone so you won't have any of the side effects you are currently experiencing. If you would like to stick with hormones, however, there are other conjugated estrogen products like Cenestin. The brand name for these products is Premarin.
Please let me know if you have further questions/comments. I am happy to get everything answered for you.
If you're all set, a positive rating is much appreciated. Thanks!
