What's the reason you would want to combine the cream with the tablets?

I am so hot, the flashes are all the time, and I just break out in sweat, I have a little portable fan and 4 ice packs at all times available. They just started yesterday and have not let up.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I wouldn't combine them for hot flash control - together they would increase your risk of heart problems and could increase your risk of blood clots. What dosage of zoloft are you on? Increasing the dosage of that medication might be a better option.

Also, have you tried isoflavones as a supplement? They are incredibly effective in the shortterm for hot flash control.

I am on 50 mg of Zoloft per day and the Estroven I started today has 60 mg of soy isoflavones per day ( I’m guessing that’s what you’re referring too)...
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Ah I see, unfortunately I read the first sentence as you saying that you are taking estrogen and not estroven. That's why there was a the confusion. So, yes, you can definitely and most certainly take those 2 together. Estroven is quite safe with the cream. However, you still have room to increase the Zoloft to help further alleviate the hot flashes. I often prescribe it at 100mg for my patients with hot flashes since 50mg is a bit on the low side.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
