Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: Lesa

I am in menopause or perimenopause now and have hot flashes. Someone recommended to me to take 1600 iu of Vitamine E and a mult I vitamin. The vitmain containes 200IU ofvitamin E also.
How Much is too much vitamin E and what is the bad side of taking too much?

Do you have any other remedies for hot flashes?

Thanks for your help

Dear Lesa:

200 I.U. twice a day for a total of 400 I.U. is all I recommend, when you go higher, it can cause high Blood pressure. So the Multivitamin + the 1 cap of Vit E 200 IU once a day gives you a total of 400 I.U.- Stop there..
Sounds to me like we should offer the saliva test to you, and measure Estradiol, progesterone, DHEA, and Testosterone; when the results come back to you and to us, then do a consultation on the phone. We then make a recommendation for you to have your doctor order from our Pharmacy, and we ship it to you. We do accept hundreds of insurance plans and ship everywhere. We also can get the saliva test covered by insurance for only a copay if you have either Blue Cross or United Healthcare coverages. Here is the program to follow, see the link in line # 2 or # 3 and submit the history form back to us, so we can help you get started. We use the natural bioidentical HRT, in a good balance to fit each individual patient to help resolve symptoms.

To learn more about how we can help you get started on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and feel better through our “Patient Empowerment Program” click here or post this in your web browser. This program was developed to assist you in getting started on the natural bioidentical hormones. It empowers you through knowledge and education to approach your physician and get the natural treatment you are looking for. We provide physician referrals, as part of our program.

The patient empowerment program is a full in-depth consultation with a consultant pharmacist whereby we evaluate your symptoms, lab work of your hormones (if performed), and any other pertinent laboratory results via phone consult. We then make an assessment and write a clinical consult note that includes recommendations for natural bioidentical hormones that you can provide to your doctor. If you have already discussed bioidentical hormones with your doctor or if your doctor refuses to prescribe them after reviewing our recommendations, we will provide you with a referral to a physician in your area that will prescribe bioidentical hormones.

We would like to help you feel better, and be your compounding pharmacy in the future. We ship all across the country, and accept hundreds of insurance plans for reimbursement.

After you fill out the consultation form, you will be contacted by one of our consultant pharmacists within 2 business days to set up a consultation. Alternatively, to get started you may call 1-800-728-0288 and request to schedule a consultation with one of our pharmacists or forward an email requests for a consult to We look forward to speaking with you.
