Depo-Estradiol Drug Information

Depo®-Estradiol (estradiol cypionate) is a hormone replacement medication that is available by prescription only. It comes as a long-acting injection and is approved for the following uses:
 
  • Treating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes or night sweats
  • Replacing hormones in younger women whose ovaries do not produce enough estrogen or who have had their ovaries removed.
  •  
Breast pain, headaches, and nausea are some of the most common side effects. Prior to beginning treatment with Depo-Estradiol, inform your healthcare provider about all other medical conditions you have and any other drugs you are taking. This medicine contains estrogen and is not right for everyone, so your healthcare provider will need this information to make sure this is the right product for you.
