Basically I've found myself in a position where I was recently changed from oral oestradiol valerate over to Sandrena .1% gel. So far, I'm pretty sure my body hates this stuff. I've been getting headaches, hot flushes, night sweats and nausea. Right now, typing this I'm starting to feel hot, I put the gel on at about 9am it's 4:20pm now (Australia). Last night trying to go to sleep, I was basically a hot sweaty mess with racing thoughts and just couldn't settle down till nearly 4am.
The Pharmacist suggested applying it to the insides of the wrists alternating the wrist each day. Asides from that I wasn't really given guidance on how to apply it by the GP. The Progynova was stopped as my new GP felt that topical was going to be better for my liver in the long run. My previous dosage was 4mg of Progynova, my current dosage is 1x .1% gel sachet a day. In case it helps, no uterus or ovaries, I've predominantly been on E only. This so far has been a week of hell, but I don't do bloods for another three weeks yet.
Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
