Just got my scripts for my hrt 😁
« on: October 20, 2020, 07:27:26 pm »
I’m soooo excited, I just picked up my spironolactone and my estradiol. Not sure if I can say the dosage so I won’t for now but I did have a question. Should I take the pills at the same time before bed or is it better in the morning? I can’t wait to start my journey!

Dear Missttee:
Congratulations on starting your HRT, I am very happy for you.  This is a big important step in your transition journey.

If your doctor has prescribed taking your pills once a day at the same time "perhaps/maybe" every morning but some regimens call for more often then once a day or other optimal times for you to take your meds...so you should follow your doctor's orders and if you are still uncertain exactly what times you are to take your meds be certain to contact your doctor. 
Guessing is not allowed.
HUGS and best wishes,
Danielle

Happy start to the rest of your life! What an exciting time. I remember the 1st time I took mine, I was beyond excited like you. Each person is unique and whatever your Dr prescribed is what you should follow. I used to take mine every morning however my Dr wrote the prescriptions that way. I no longer take estradiol in pill form but I used to let it dissolve under my tongue every morning when I did.

Congratulations on this critical turning point. Enjoy the euphoria, it only lasts a short time.

My doctor said it didn't make any difference what time. However, I take E in the morning and E in the evening.  I also take Dutasteride in the evening.
I'm a 66 year old male who has been thinking about SRS for many years.  I also was a  full cross dresser for a few years.  I wear a bra, pantyhose and nail polish daily because it just feels right.

Started HRT April 17, 2019.

Congratulation on starting HRT.  Talk your dosing administration over with your health care provider. Estrogen is a very powerful hormone, a little goes a long way. Do follow directions. Do abstain from drugs, alcohol and especially any and all forms of tobacco. Do adopt a healthy life style, diet, exercise, sleep, hydration.  I split my estradiol mono therapy, half in the morning and the other half in the evening 12 hours later.

I don’t smoke or do drugs but I def enjoy a glass of wine here and there. I have heard of lots of pple splitting the E and taking twice a day. I may try that after my 3 month checkup with my dr. I’m on day 4 now and so far just notice I swear less and it doesn’t smell as much but other than that no change. I look forward to each and every change in the years to come.

I split my dose to even out the peaks. I do not know that it makes a difference at the my dosing levels. People do weekly and bi weekly injections with great results. I suspect that these people are relatively young with resilient bodies.  At 67 and not a spring chicken, though the Estradiol may make me feel that way, am taking it slow and taking it all in and enjoying the ride.
