Premarin vs Estradiol or Estropipate

Wondering if anyone can tell me any differences in these meds? The doctor prescribed Premarin but I don't have insurance for rx. I can get the Estradiol for $4 at Walmart but the Premarin is over $60. I don't know if the doctor will change the rx to Estradiol or Estropipate but I am wondering if anyone has experience with these last two drugs? Notice a difference ?

inkwell,

You can read more about the various hormone options available to us in the articles at www.hormonejungle.com

Everyone is different, while many women do just fine on Premarin, for others it does not work well. If it were me, I would opt for the $4 Estradiol and see how that goes. You can always change later on should it not work out for you.
