This medication is a type of female hormone used by women to alleviate menopausal symptoms like vaginal dryness and hot flashes. These symptoms occur when the body produces less estrogen.

Women may also use certain estrogen products after menopause to prevent bone loss. In addition to menopausal symptoms, certain estrogen products may also treat cancers, like certain types of prostate cancer and breast cancer that have metastasized to other parts of the body. Women who are unable to produce sufficient estrogen may also use these products.

Uses and Dosage

To take this medication, follow your doctor’s instructions and consume it by mouth, with or without food. You may take it after a meal or with food to avoid stomach upset.

If you are using extended-release tablets, avoid crushing, chewing, or dissolving them, as doing so may release the entire drug at once, which could lead to side effects. Swallow the tablets whole.

Your dosage will be determined based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

To derive the most benefit from this medication, take it regularly. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day, according to your dosing schedule. Do not increase your dose or use this medication more frequently or for a longer duration than directed.
