Generic Estradiol = Estrace????? HELP..ASAP!!

My drug company (done all mail order) has sent me the wrong thing they sent me a generic substitute for Estrace. It's called Estradiol....Apothecon. I was on Estratab before but there is a hold on it's manufacturing. I just recieved this this evening. I have been without Estrogen now since Saturday....don't know what to do? Should I insist on no substitute?
Thanks for any help you can give me.

I do think the generic form of Estrace is estradiol. I had requested Estrace tablets from my gyn. and that's what my bottle said when I got it filled.

I have heard that there can be a difference between the generics and the real stuff when it comes to estrogen. For some women it doesn't matter, but for some it does have an effect. JMHO I would go ahead and use it as it is probably better than going without, and than in the future specify "NO GENERICS" when ordering. Or you could call the mail order pharmacy and see if there is anything you can do to receive the brand name. I've used mail order for years for my asthma inhalers. I've always received the brand names, than one time they just substituted the generics, and they did not work as well for me. I now always specifically write in big bold letters on my order form "NO Generics". I think they may have changed something where they automatically substitute generics unless otherwise stated.
