... and starting?
You might be taking too much. I started 1mg of estradiol for hot flashes, mood swings and migraines. (Chronic daily migraines, not the classic lightening-bolt, 2-day, aura + nausea migraines). I got moody and started breaking out (aaaaah! Zits at 47!!! ) So I'm breaking the tablets in half and then scratching off a little more. I'm probably actually getting 0.4 or 0.35mg a day.
Try DIY reducing the dose for a week. If that doesn't work, try INCREASING.
Maybe going on a hormone replacement with both estrogen AND progesterone might help, too.
Keep nagging your doc. S/he has a responsibility to make you BETTER.
