Estrace (Estradiol) is a female hormone. It is used by women to help reduce symptoms of menopause including having hot flashes and vaginal dryness/itching. These symptoms are caused by the body making less estrogen. If you are using this medication to treat symptoms only in and around the vagina i.e. physical symptoms, products applied directly inside the vagina should be considered before medications that are taken orally, absorbed through the skin, or injected. Certain estrogen products may also be used by women after menopause to prevent osteoporosis. However, there are other medications that are also effective in preventing bone loss and may be safer. These medications should be considered for use before estrogen treatment. Certain estrogen products may also be used by men and women to treat certain types of cancer. Estradiol (Generic) is available in addition to the brand name Estrace. 

What is the most effective way to take Estrace?

  • Estrogen comes as a tablet to take by mouth.
  • Usually taken with or without food once a day. Estrogen is sometimes taken every day and sometimes taken according to a rotating schedule that alternates a period of time when estrogen is taken every day with a period of time when estrogen is not taken.
  • When estrogen is used to relieve the symptoms of cancer, it is usually taken three times a day.
  • Take estrogen at around the same time(s) every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand.
  • Take estrogen exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Your doctor may start you on a low dose of estrogen and gradually increase your dose if your symptoms are still bothersome, or decrease your dose if your symptoms are well-controlled.
  • Talk to your doctor about how well estrogen works for you. Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a copy of the manufacturer's information for the patient.


Before taking Estrace,

  • tell your doctor if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other drug allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.
  • tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: 
    • vaginal bleeding of unknown cause
    • certain cancers such as breast cancer
    • blood clots
    • stoke, heart disease
    • liver or kidney disease
    • family medical history of breast lumps and 
    • family or personal history of angioedema (a certain swelling disorder)
    • blood clotting disorders (such as protein C or protein S deficiency)
    • diabetes
    • mineral imbalance
    • uterus problems such as fibroids
    • asthma
    • mental/mood disorders such as depression

Do not smoke or use tobacco. Estrogens combined with smoking further increases your risk of stroke, blood clots, high blood pressure, and heart attack, especially in women older than 35.
