few years ago my doctor switched from premarin to estradiol
i was taken premarin since 1999 then switch to estradiol because my health insurance had been changed not cover so now i took an estradiol few years ago. i like premarin because it helped me not to get hot flash. i just wanted it back but it was too expensive. now i took an estradiol that was okay but not enough helping for hot flash. i can afford to pay less cost.
