Chemical Name : Estradiol
Estrace Information : ESTRACE (Estradiol) is a female hormone and is usually given to women who no longer produce the proper amount. ESTRACE (Estradiol) is used to reduce menopause symptoms (e.g., hot flashes, vaginal dryness), to prevent bone loss (osteoporosis) in people at high risk, or to treat certain cancers in men and women (e.g., certain types of metastatic breast cancer). ESTRACE (Estradiol) may be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. If you are only being treated for vaginal menopause symptoms, products applied locally such as vaginal creams, tablets, or rings should be considered before ESTRACE (Estradiol) is taken by mouth or absorbed through the skin. There are several medicines (e.g., raloxifene or bisphosphonates) that are safe and effective to prevent or treat bone loss. These medicines should be considered for use before estrogen therapy for osteoporosis. If you have other medical conditions as well, and are prescribed estrogens for more than one condition, consult your doctor about your treatment plan and its options. Estrogen-containing products should not be used to prevent heart disease.
Estrace Side Effects : ESTRACE side effects, that may go away during treatment, include dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, stomach upset, bloating, nausea, weight changes, increased/decreased interest in sex, or breast tenderness. If ESTRACE side effects continue or are bothersome, check with your doctor. CONTACT YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY if you experience ESTRACE side effects like mental/mood changes (e.g., severe depression, memory loss), calf pain/swelling, sudden severe headache, chest pain, trouble breathing, one-sided weakness, slurred speech, vision changes (e.g., change in contact lens fit, loss of vision) breast lumps, swelling of hands or feet, changes in vaginal bleeding (e.g., spotting, breakthrough bleeding, or prolonged bleeding), unusual vaginal discharge/itching/odor, or yellowing of eyes or skin. ESTRACE side effects are unlikely but seek immediate medical attention if i ESTRACE side effects occur. ESTRACE side effects include rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, or trouble breathing. If you notice other ESTRACE side effects not listed above, contact your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
