Estradiol - Overview
Estradiol, available in forms such as an estradiol cream (Estrace), estradiol patch and ethinyl estradiol, is a medication used to help replace estradiol in people, particularly women, with low estrogen levels. People in need of an estradiol prescription such as Estrace cream can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe medications like an estradiol patch when appropriate and safe to do so.
What Is Estradiol?
Estradiol, marketed under brand names such as Estrace, Vivelle-Dot, Vagifem and Climara, belongs to a class of medications known as estrogen hormone medications. Estrogens are used in the body for maintaining and developing female sexual characteristics and also play a lesser role in men's health. As the primary form of estrogen hormone, estradiol is highly potent as a hormone. Estradiol is primarily produced by the ovarian follicle in premenopausal women and is synthesized by other metabolic processes after menopause. Estradiol also plays a role in modulating levels of other hormones. One form of estradiol, ethinyl estradiol, is a common ingredient found in birth control medications. Estradiol is sometimes combined with progesterone in combination hormone therapy. Estradiol synthesis is reduced by aromatase inhibitor enzymes like Arimidex.
Estradiol - Dosage and Coupons
As Estrace, estradiol vaginal cream 0.01% is often prescribed as two grams daily for one week, tapered from there. At times, a maintenance dose of estradiol cream may be prescribed but is generally discontinued as quickly as possible at the discretion of the prescribing medical provider given the risks associated with long-term use. Estradiol is moderately affordable, costing, for example, under $40 for 1 carton of estradiol 0.05 mg / day of eight patches for twice weekly use. Estradiol vaginal creams are typically dispensed with an applicator to enable proper dosing. Estradiol coupons are sometimes available online or through the manufacturer. Insurance plans may also cover the cost of an estradiol vaginal cream prescription at times. As Estrace cream, estradiol should generally be stored at room temperature but consult the package insert for exact instructions.
Can I Buy Estradiol Online?
Estradiol medications, including Estrace cream and estradiol vaginal creams, are prescription medications in the United States. As such, one cannot just buy estradiol online or get Estrace OTC at a pharmacy. Instead, the first step is getting a prescription from a medical provider. Through Push Health, people can connect with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe estradiol when appropriate and safe to do so.
Estradiol - Side Effects
Estradiol medication use in all forms can cause side effects. Side effects that can result from estradiol use include dryness, itching, redness, irritation, headache, breast tenderness, irregular vaginal bleeding, nausea and vomiting. Estradiol can increase the risk of endometrial cancer, myocardial infarction, stroke, cancer, dementia, pulmonary emboli and deep vein thrombosis in some women. Estradiol medications and alcohol should not be used together. Estradiol creams and other forms should not be used by people who have had a prior hypersensitivity to estradiol, estrogen or similar medications. Before using estradiol or Estrace, it is important to discuss concerns and possible side effects with one's medical provider and pharmacist prior to use.
