Depo-Estradiol Dosage

Your healthcare provider will consider several factors when determining the best Depo-Estradiol dosage for your particular situation. Some of these factors include the medical condition being treated, how you respond to the medication, and other existing medical conditions you have. Depo-Estradiol is injected into a muscle every three to four weeks, and is usually administered by your healthcare provider.

Depo-Estradiol Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Depo®-Estradiol (estradiol cypionate) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition being treated
  • How you respond to Depo-Estradiol
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
  •  
As always, do not adjust your Depo-Estradiol dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Depo-Estradiol Dosing for Menopause Symptoms

When treating menopausal symptoms, it is typically recommended that hormone replacement therapy (including Depo-Estradiol) should be taken at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible period of time. However, the most effective dose (and how long it should be taken) can vary considerably from one woman to the next.
 
The recommended Depo-Estradiol dose is 1 mg to 5 mg injected once every three to four weeks. If you still have a uterus (if you have not had a hysterectomy), it is recommended that you take a progestin medication along with Depo-Estradiol, in order to help prevent cancer of the lining of the uterus.
