I assume you are taking the estradiol for menopausal symptoms?

No medicine is without risks and your increased dose is still within the usual dose range of between 0.45 mg and 2 mg once a day.

In general, the duration of hormone therapy for the treatment of postmenopausal symptoms should be limited - from 1 to five years.

Estradiol may increase the risk of cardiovascular events, breast cancer and blood clots so use should be limited to the shortest possible time.

Talk with your doctor if you have any concerns.
