I have been taking prometrium 100mg & Estratest HS for several years with very good results. Now that the manufacturer(Solvay) has stopped making Estratest HS, I am taking EEMT-HS (made by Creekwood Pharmaceuticals.) I know the generic dosage is supposed to be the same as the brand, but I have noticed a huge difference! I have started gaining weight like crazy, my libido is much lower, my peri-oral dermatitis if flaring (this only happens when my hormones are not right) I feel tired and weak and am craving candy! Has anyone else had this issue with the generic? Am I getting too much or too little estrogen and /or testosterone? Is there any clinical information on the differences btwn the brands? I have a doctor appt. in October, but would like to know that someone if else is having issues with the EEMT-HS
Ps I am 44, post-menopausal due to chemotherapy for lupus nephritis.
