- Natural remedies, including herbal supplements and "bioidentical" hormone replacement.
- Vaginal bleeding.

How Should Estrace Be Stored?Estrace tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat, in an airtight container. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What If I Miss a Dose?If you do not take your Estrace as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
