when to take estrace

Hello Ladies, I am 5 weeks as of yesterday. Doing ok except now I have the flu!! YUCK....

I have low thyroid and take 1.25mcg of levoxyl every morning. When I had my surgery my Dr put me on 1mg of estrace and told me to take it in the morning. It seems like after I take the estrace that within an hour I feel sick to my stomach, I have not thrown up because of it but at times feel like I could. It almost reminds me of morning sickness.

I wonder if I was to switch the time i take my estrace if I would feel better. Like if i took the estrace at night.

Do any of you ladies take your hormone at night instead of the morning, does it matter?

Hi Courtney

I'm sorry you have the flu during your recovery. Hopefully it won't last long!

Lots of women experiment with the timing of their hormones. I think it makes sense to try taking it in the evening if you are having problems taking it the same time as your thyroid medication. You can call your pharmacist and/or doctor to be sure.

I hope you find a time that works out well for you!

when to take estrace

HI Courtney

I have experimented with taking my estrogen at different times of the day. I currently use it at night and in the morning.

When I took estrace I divided my dose and took half in the morning and half in the evening. I have found that I do better using my estrogen every twelve hours.

Here is a list of possible side effects that may occur with estrace.
Possible side effects

I had experienced some mild nausea from another brand of estrogen and it did go away about a week after I started taking it.
If your symptoms of nausea do not go away or are bothersome, it may be a good idea to call and let your doctor know what you are experiencing.

when to take estrace

I started out taking my Estrace in the morning- 1mg- but I felt by evening I was on the down side. So I decided to split my dose- SO I took 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the evening. I felt improvement with that dose. Later I was still having vag. dryness and bladder problems- my dr. increased my dose to 1mg in the morning and 1mg in the evening. That just felt like too much for me- had headaches and felt alittle anxious- so decreased my evening dose to 1/2mg and kept my morning dose to 1mg. That seems to the right does for me because I haven't had any difficulty with the vag. dryness and can sleep good at night. I recently started testosterone cream in the am to boost my loss of sensation in the sexual areas of my body- So far so good!
