I am in 44 years old in menopause. I was taking Premarin for the sweats and mood swings and it seemed to work. My insurance company requested that I substitute the Estraderm/Estrodiol Patch for savings purposes. Anyway I started the patch and I seem to be having migraine like headaches and TERRIBLE insomnia. Has anyone else had these side effects by taking this med? Any comments or suggestions would be greatly accepted.
I'm on a very low dose of Estrodiol cream 0.1% that is applied on my thighs. I haven't had any of the side effects you mention. I would go back to your previous hormones or check into bioidential hormone replacement. Your health is more important; you come first. Your insurance company should be aware of what these new hormones are doing to you.
