What is Gynokadin Dosiergel (Estradiol) used for?
Gynokadin Dosiergel (Estradiol) is a topical hormone used to treat women suffering from symptoms associated with menopause. The medication operates by raising reduced hormone levels to restore their normal balance. This action can reduce the severity of or prevent symptoms such as hot flashes, palpitations, headaches, lost of interest in sex, or vaginal dryness. Your doctor may prescribe this medicine to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Gynokadin Dosiergel (Estradiol)?
Gynokadin Dosiergel (Estradiol) should be used according to the instructions provided by your doctor to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. Most patients are directed to apply 2.5g once each day to a broad unbroken area of skin such as the shoulders. The best instructions will be determined by your age, weight, health condition, and the severity of your symptoms. To administer the dose gently wipe and dry the area using a moist cloth to clear any dirt or debris, use the included measuring device to gather the correct dosage, apply it to the area, and gently massage it into the skin until it is absorbed. Wash your hands using soap and water after each application to prevent the medicine from contacting any other areas not being treated or your mucous membranes. Always ask your doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
