Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

Bayview Pharmacy's Estradiol 0.35 mg/Progesterone 100 mg Slow Release Capsules are a specially compounded medication designed to treat a variety of conditions. This unique formulation incorporates Methocel E4M, a controlled-release polymer, which ensures the gradual release of the encapsulated estradiol and progesterone over an extended period. This slow-release mechanism offers sustained therapeutic effects, reduces the need for frequent dosing, and improves patient compliance, particularly for medications requiring a controlled and prolonged release profile.

Estradiol, a form of estrogen, is a hormone that plays a crucial role in regulating the menstrual cycle and other reproductive processes. Progesterone, on the other hand, is a hormone that prepares the uterus for pregnancy and helps maintain a healthy pregnancy. When combined in this formulation, these hormones work synergistically to alleviate menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. They also help to mitigate the symptoms of endometriosis, including pelvic pain and heavy menstrual bleeding, and can contribute to the reduction of uterine fibroids.

Bayview Pharmacy's Estradiol 0.35 mg/Progesterone 100 mg Slow Release Capsules offer an effective and convenient treatment option for these conditions.
