vivelle dot .1 to estradiol 2mg.

I have been moody and having insomnia so my doctor checked my hormone levels through blood work and apparently they are low. He is changing me from vivelle dot .1 to estradiol 2mg. I do not know what is really the difference other than the mg. They said the estradiol is in pill form. I am not sure what to expect from this change. I fear that it will maybe spark up endometriosis again. Weight gain. Although I am not the biggest fan of this moodiness or anything, but maybe that can be contained through other means. Any ideas or anyone that can explain this to me? Is the 2mg a large dose? Could it spark up the endo again? If it does will coming off it stop it is it repairable or permanant and I have to deal with the endo all over again from that point on again? thanks in advance.

I'm also on the Vivelle dot .1 and seem to be doing fine expect for the night sweats. There is a larger dose in vivelle but my doctor said that sometimes women need testosterone as well to even things out. I was on Lupron from my moodiness before my hyster so I haven't noticed any major difference unless I'm battling thing out for my short term disability! I also had endo but was on a clinical study that actually got rid of it so when I had my hyster they only found adhesions and adenomyosis. Is your gyn a end specialist? If so they know the best treatments.

hmm i was unaware of there being a larger dose of vivelle i have not seen it online and my doc said he was changing to the estradiol 2mg because there was not a larger dose of vivelle because the vivelle is his favorite. it must be really new. i will ask him on monday as his office is closed on fridays. thanks for the advice.

I have been on Estradiol 1mg since my surgery & am doing great!!! However, I fear the side effects, ie blood clots, etc. Does anyone know much about it? I have gotten along wonderfully, but still waiting on the other shoe to drop, so to speak.

Crap... I was wrong Vivelle .1 is the highest dose. However there is a Estrogel my doctor said I could try if Vivelle didn't work. My doctor doesn't like pills because he said they have to filter through your liver. I guess each doc has their own opinions but I would investigate the Estrogel!

I also found that Climara is like Vivelle and comes in 6 different dosages so maybe that would be a good replacement. It is also able to be taken for endo patients.

you know i was doing awesome until about a week ago. i guess it took that long for things to go awry. i hope things continue to go well for you and your dosage continues to go well for you. best of luck. i had my surgery 2/19 if that helps for you to have a reference point.

i am on a plan with my doc with getting off of the hrt as soon as possible (granted over a period of years and if side effects start appearing we will expedite). i do not know if you have talked to your doc about such a plan, but maybe you should if you have not. i do not think the drugs are designed to stay on for life, especially if your a younger person. i am 29. however, from what i have read they are not meant to be on for life at any age, max of 5 yrs from what i have read but i am not a medical professional so obviously check with your doctor and i am not highly experienced anyway with this but have been doing a ton of reading and gathering advice on here. there are also others on here that dont think they could ever get off of hrt because side effects are just too much so i guess it depends for each of us. my doc says he thinks if he tapers me off ever so slowly it is definitley possible for me and imperative. i am hopeful.
