combi-patch and estradiol

I am on these hormones about a month and a week for the oral estradiol. I have been in menopause for 4 years. I am having surgery July 7. I am on the HRT mostly for depression symptoms. I also take antidepressants but they only do so much. Any one else experiencing these meds?

Re: combi-patch and estradiol

Hi

It takes about 6 weeks to feel the full effect of any hormone change. Maybe you need to give the oral estradiol some more time.

Have you seen an endocrinologist concerning the possibility of a hormonal imbalance causing your depression? I know that my Doctors were running tests, but when I saw the Endocrinologist, she ran a level of testing which provided information that doesn't show up on the testing that Family Practicioners usually run. For example, low thyroid can cause depression, and my FP had run tests which showed a normal working thyroid. However, the endocrinologist ran more extensive tests showing that my thyroid was not working properly. Some thyroid medication and treatment for an endocrine disorder I didn't know I had, took care of my depression.

I don't know if that is what is causing your problems, but it might be worth it to you to give it a try.

I hope you will find the answers so you can feel better soon.
