Why is Estrogel prescribed?
Estrogel, with the generic name Estradiol, is a topical gel used to treat and prevent symptoms of menopause in women who are or are undergoing menopause.
What does it do?
Estradiol, a form of estrogen, is a naturally occurring hormone in the body that typically decreases once menopause begins. Estradiol works as a replacement for estrogen that is normally produced in the body, providing relief of symptoms such as hot flashes (sudden strong feelings of heat) and vaginal changes such as dryness, itching, or burning sensation.
How should I apply it?
Estrogel is currently available as 0.06% topical gel applied on the skin of one arm, starting from the wrist to the shoulder. Do not apply this gel on the breasts or on dry, irritated skin.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before applying Estrogel?
Avoid smoking or going near fire or open flame until Estrogel has completely dried, as this medication can catch fire.
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking. Discuss your current and previous medical history and any allergic reactions to Estrogel, or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Inform your doctor if you had any form of surgery or if you are planning to get one.
