Estradiol Overview

Estradiol (E2), also spelled oestradiol, is an estrogen steroid hormone and the major female sex hormone. It is involved in the regulation of the estrous and menstrual female reproductive cycles. Estradiol is responsible for the development of female secondary sexual characteristics such as the breasts, widening of the hips, and a feminine pattern of fat distribution in women and is important in the development and maintenance of female reproductive tissues such as the mammary glands, uterus,...

Small Blue Oval Pill I998 or I988 with split between the letter and number

Small Blue Oval Pill I998 or I988 with split between the letter and number. Anyone know what this is? ## Hi John, I located an oval blue/purplish pill with the imprint "b 886 1". The "b" is on one side and on the other side is "886" and "1" separated by a score line. Looking at the pill upside down shows the imprint as "1" "988"; which is what you described. This pill is identified as Estradiol (1 mg); which is used in the treatment of postmenopausal symptoms; atrophic vaginitis; osteoporosis; prostate cancer; oophorectomy; and more. For verification, the National Drug Code (NDC) is: 00555-0886 Could this possibly be a match? ## doctor have gave me this estradiol for my nite sweat n hot flashes I'm worried it may give me cancer I have ...

estradiol 1 mg watson 487

I have been taking this pill for about 10 yrs. I refilled my prescription and suddenly I am experiencing hot flashes and sleeping problems (laying awake for hours). Costco says it is the same manufacturer as before (Watson). I am wondering if "bad batches" have been reported lately. My last refill prior to this one was 90 days ago and I had no problems with that refill. My pharmacist says there is no reason and they have not had anyone complain. Are there any recent complaints regarding this manufacturer? ## Hello, Cher! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you're having. No, I've not read any reports of such. However, after 10 years, it could be that it just isn't working for you in this dosage, anymore. Our bodies do tend to get used to anything we take fo...

EST Estrgn Methtest .625/1.25 mg

I am a 42 yr old woman and had a complete hysterectomy in October 2008. Within 1 year of my surgery, I began experiencing extreme hair loss. This November, my doctor prescribed EST ESTRN METHTEST .625/1.25 mg (in addition to the ESTRADIOL .5mg that I was already taking) to help reduce the hair loss. I was wondering if this medication is used for this purpose (as well as it's other benefits)? My mother is a breast cancer survivor (2009) & I am concerned about increasing my chances, by taking all these medications. Is it safe, or should I just accept my balding? ## This medication is a combination of Esterified Estrogens and Methyltestosterone, they are used for hormone replacement, to help with the symptoms of menopause or a deficiency in these hormones. Thus, yes, if the hair lo...

Does estradiol help with weight loss?

I started back on .5 estradiol. I have not been on it for a year and 1/2 and I have gained a lot of weight. I started on supplements that helped me to feel better so I thought I could go off estradiol. It’s so weird cause I thought I would lose weight going off of it and I keep gaining. I eat clean, exercise daily and drink only water. I started back up yesterday so I’m hoping it will help me take some of this weight off. Has anyone heard of weight loss when on estradiol? ## Are you perimenopausal, or post menopausal? If so, these conditions can cause some weight gain, regardless of what medication you take, your diet, or exercise, this is well documented in NIH studies. It is a well known fact that most middle aged women tend to gain weight and develop a paunch in the midse...

Angeliq (Drospirenone/Estradiol) Hormone tablets

I am in my late forties, for the last 3 months my period has been so heavy that I can't go to work. I am messing up my self, bedding, etc. I need to know whether angelique would help me? ## Unfortunately, since I have no way of knowing what is causing your problem, I really can't answer that question. Angelique is a form of hormone replacement therapy, that contains Estradiol and Drospirenone and as such, there are some conditions it can help with, but it is not appropriate to treat everything. Have you consulted a doctor? Hormones are only going to be appropriate, if your condition is caused by a lack of the ones this medication contains. If it is caused by something else, such as ovarian cysts, then you would need the treatment appropriate to treat them. ## I 've been havi...

Cannot afford Estradiol patch or Progesterone cap

I cannot possibly afford the monthly price through my Pharmacy at Publix at Hobe Sound, Florida 33455. I am retired on a limited budget, and and hoping I can get help in the form of a discount coupon. My current physician's name is Dr. Laurie Rothman, MD located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida 33410. My insurance will not cover the .0375 Estadiol Transdermal system, nor the progesterone 100mg cap vir. The monthly price of both are way above my ability to afford. I am hopeful for any help or advice. I am a retired teacher after 34+ years with the Palm Beach County School District in Palm Beach County, Florida. ## Hi Carol - Sorry to hear about challenges with the cost of your meds. As far as a discount coupon goes, I know that this site offers a free rx discount card which may provide...

dog ate one estradiol

My 65 pound ate one. 5mg estradiol will it hurt het ## Dear cheese, I would call the Vet, right away. ## @Cheese, Sorry to hear about your dog getting ahold of birth control. I'd imagine that must've been an awkward experience wondering how the dog might react in that moment lol. Although I see you posted this back in May, earlier this year. Do you have any feedback on the status of your dog now? To summarize my own investigation/research on the topic, the levels of toxicity for estrogen are not often reached via the ingestion of contraceptive pills, and is reported to be at dosages greater than 1 mg/kg of body weight. And please correct me if I'm wrong, but this means that a 25lb dog would need to consume quite a few of these pills for a toxic effect. So if I understand tha...
