Dosage for Biest

Got switched to biest last month but still not working as well as patch. I asked for equivelent of .05 vivelle dot. I am on 1. 25 Biest- Use .1 ml daily or .2 ml if needed. I am doing .1 in morning and .1 in evening and still hot flashing lots!! I see lots of you on 2.5 biest and told phramacist that but he said if I used it morning and evening, it would be 2.5. Is that correct? Also on 10% progesterone dosage of .3 ml daily which is the same as when I was on dot . My pharmacist and Dr are really new at this but wonderful to work with-I just need some confirmation from you guys that I am on track. Thanks.

Dosage for Biest

Some people do really well with the creams but I was not one of them. I did not absorb it into my system. I now use biest capsules and it is much better. I also take a higher amount - needed more of the estradiol. That is also an individual thing but if you are still getting hotflashes or other symptoms, then you are probably not getting enough estrogen.
I'd go back to the doctor and/or pharmacist and make it clear to them that you are not feeling well and that it could be the cream not working or maybe the dose is not high enough for you.
Best of Luck
P.S. Two good books: Hormone Balance by Dr. Uzi Reiss or the book by Dr. Erika Schwartz (Can't remember the name!!!) Both are featured on the power-surge website.
