EstroGel Medication Information
Many symptoms of menopause are due to the fact that the ovaries are no longer producing estrogen. As a result, drugs like EstroGel® (estradiol gel) work by replacing this lost estrogen, thereby providing symptom relief. This particular medicine comes as a gel that is applied to the skin once a day. It should be applied at the same time each day to dry skin.
Prior to beginning treatment with EstroGel, your healthcare provider needs information on your current medications and any other medical conditions you have. Drug interactions are possible with this product, and not all women can use it, so reviewing this with your healthcare provider helps ensure a safe treatment process.
