Why am I on highest dose of Premarin?

I had my check up last week and my doc put me on Premarin 1.25 for 60 days and then I will go on Vivelle Dot. Why am I on the highest dose? Is it my age (34)? I don't want to be on the highest dose. Also in the week after surgery, I didn't have any menopause symptoms and now that I am on the HRT I have night sweats and can feel myself on the borderline of being a meany. Should I ask to be lowered when I go on the patch?

Re: Why am I on highest dose of Premarin?

There really is no right or wrong here. One thing I found during that first year post op was that my body craved more estrogen, not less. I was 36 at the time of my surgery and nowhere near menopause.

Your symptoms could be from fluctuating hormone levels as your body recovers from surgery and uses up it stores reserves of hormones.

It is true that it is best to be on the lowest dose to help with your symptoms. Talk with your doctor when you go in for your checkup.

I was 30 when I started using estrogen. I was on oral Estrace 2mg. It's also the highest dose. My Dr. didn't start me there, but I could not live with the unrelenting hot flashes. I think Kim's right. It's not uncommon for younger women to need more. Your symptoms are probably just getting much more noticeable the further you are from your surgery. Maybe your Dr. is just trying to get a jump on the inevitable crash of your body losing it's natural hormone source.
