Drug Interactions

Estropipate can interact with several other medications (see Drug Interactions With Estropipate).

Alternatives to Estropipate

Estropipate is not the only available method of relieving menopausal symptoms. Other options include:
  • Coping strategies, such as wearing lighter clothes for hot flashes or using a vaginal lubricant for dryness
  • Other medications, such as other estrogens or combinations of estrogens with progestins
  • Natural remedies, including herbal supplements and "bioidentical" hormone replacement.
(Click Ogen Alternatives for more information about other menopause treatment options.)

What If I Take an Overdose?

People who take too much estropipate may experience the following symptoms:
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Vaginal bleeding (in females).
(Click Ogen Overdose for more information.)

How Should This Medicine Be Stored?

Estropipate tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in an airtight container. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your estropipate as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed one and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
