Estradiol side effects


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.

Re: Estradiol side effects

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.
