- Other medications, such as other estrogens or combinations of estrogens with progestins
- Natural remedies, including herbal supplements and "bioidentical" hormone replacement.
What If I Take an Overdose?

- Vaginal bleeding (in females).
Estrasorb should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What If I Miss a Dose of Estrasorb?
If you do not take your Estrasorb as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember (or, if you prefer, simply skip your missed dose). If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not double your dose of Estrasorb.
