    Hi Sue,

    Great minds think alike!! I also switched from the Premarin after taking it for 23 years to the Estrace. I asked my doctor for the .5 tablets which as you say are white to avoid the dyes that are used in some of the pills, especially Premarin uses a lot of dyes and other ingredients.

    I can't say I noticed a big difference when I switched to the Estrace but if anyone is taking Premarin and having a lot of urinary pain I would recommend talking to your doctor about switching to Estrace. You can get the .5 mg. tablets as Sue said and you can decide on your dosage from there.

    info for HRT users who need progesterone

    What I've discovered through trial- and- error thus far on HRT is: take a natural, bio-identical to human estrogen & progesterone. For me that has been Estrace & Prometrium (natural micronized progesterone). Drs. will prescribe that horse's urine (to be blunt) kind of estrogen almost all the time if you don't request this. Now, here's the BIGGIE: I may have flared during the progesterone cycle from the peanut oil that Prometrium is made with. I had it compounded with olive oil instead, and did not flare this round. Now maybe I was just lucky, but since I avoid nuts due to flaring, I took a shot at that it could be the peanut oil. Also, I avoid the 1 mg. Estrace because it has red dye, and take 2 of the .5 white tabs instead. Believe me, noboby but an IC person is going to tell you this stuff! I hope this saves just one person the trouble.
