Help is there a difference in generic estradiol?

Hoping for some assurance! After being to several drs (even by obgyn of 20 years!) and being told there was nothing wrong with me(too young for menopause, all though I was having night sweats,bad anxiety,heart palpations,heart racing,developed high blood pressure,hives,itching,no sleep, I finally decided to see an endocrinologist. It turns out my estrogen level was 37 and my vitamin D level was 22. Since I have had the hysterectomy over 4 years ago and kept ovaries, he put me on estrace. I filled the generic it was by Mylan(round blue pill, works great! felt so great, when I ran out I refilled it at sams cause it was cheaper. They gave me generic Barr, am I crazy or can this brand be different? I have been on it over a week and all my symptoms are back. Now I'm scared to death, that all this anxiety and other symptoms are all in my head? Can there be a difference in the brands. I hope so! otherwise I'm in big trouble!
I went back to walgreens and was lucky enough to refill the mylan round blue ones, cause sams dosent run the $4 generic through my insurance. Am starting them this morning. Any help and assurance would be appreciated! I'm so tired of being run down want to feel like I did last month on the little blue magic pills
thanks so much for letting me ask and vent! lisa

I hope you get back to the way you were feeling on the first pills. I am sure there is a difference. I was on generic oral estradiol also and found that compounded estradiol works better for me. I am curious what dosage are you on. The generic estradiol I was on the .5mg is a white pill and the 1mg is a pink pill. I am wondering if you have the regular estrace pills which is not a generic.

Hi KellyKr,
thanks for responding! The endocrinologist put me on generic Estrace 2mg round blue pill made by Mylan, then when I went to refill I was given the generic made by Barr. This morning is my 3rd day back on the original, that worked so well before. I was only the barr brand for a week and half but now my symptoms are back in full force. I changed clothes twice last night. . I'm hoping the original will kick in soon. Wonder how many days it will take for it to overide the other generic? thanks so much! I love this site, makes me feel like I'm not alone! blessings Lisa
