I have been using Estrace for 6 months and have only experienced rare vertigo/dizziness for a few moments at a time. I would have stopped if I had experienced any of these symptoms. After the first 3 weeks of daily use, dropped dosage down and have been only using once a week for over 5 months.
I hope you find something better.
My gynocologist told me to use Cetaphil lotion for dryness. Only a little bit to moisturise the vaginal area. It works fine and no weird stuff in it. My daughter and I use Cetaphil cleanser for that area to clean also. It's good for the face and bottom area. Hope this helps. smiley happy
