General Information on Evamist
Evamist is a transdermal spray used to treat night sweats and hot flashes experienced by women going through menopause. It contains Estradiol, a form of estrogen.
Estradiol, the main active ingredient in the medication, acts as a hormone replacement. It binds itself to estrogen sensitive tissues and prevents the release of follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and gonadotropin through a negative feedback mechanism. These hormones may be linked to some menopause symptoms.
Evamist is available in the form of a skin spray. Each spray delivers 90mvL, which contains 1.53mg of Estradiol. The drug is a prescription medication, so you must consult a doctor before you buy Evamist.
Side effects of Evamist
Evamist may cause mild to severe side effects in some cases. Some women may experience nipple pain, joint pain, headaches, back pain, breast tenderness, or common cold after using Evamist. These are common side effects associated with the medication and wane over time. However, you should inform your doctor if any side effect persists or worsens.
Some women may also experience severe side effects after using Evamist. Heart attacks, depression, breast cancer, gallbladder disease, uterine cancer, strokes, ovarian cancer, or dementia are some severe side effects associated with the drug. Other severe side effects of Evamist include unexpected or heavy vaginal bleeding or allergic reactions such as difficulty swallowing or breathing, wheezing, or unexplained swelling.
Formation of blood clots is also one of the severe side effects associated with Evamist. You should always watch out for the following symptoms that indicate blood clots in specific parts of the body or other medical problems:
- Signs of blood clot in the leg - Foot or leg swelling, leg cramps, pain in the calf region.
- Signs of a blood clot in the lung – Sharp chest pain, shortness of breath, or coughing up of blood.
- Signs of liver damage – Yellowing of the skin and eyes, pain in the upper right abdominal region, dark urine.
- Signs of a stroke – Numbness or weakness in the leg or arm, speech or vision changes, severe headache.
- Signs of blood clot in the eye- Vision changes, sudden loss of vision.
Dosage of Evamist
The dosage of Evamist depends on several factors such as your response to treatment, other medical conditions you are suffering from, and the severity of menopause symptoms. Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage.
Doctors generally recommend a small dose of one spray which is equivalent to 1.53mg Estradiol at the beginning of treatment. Spray the medication on any area between the forearm and wrist. You need to ensure that the medication is only sprayed on dry, clean, and unbroken skin. Evamist should only be used once a day.
Evamist dries quickly after application, but you must wait for at least two minutes after spraying the drug before wearing any clothing on the sprayed area.
Evamist may interact with other drugs you are taking and cause side effects. It may interact with protease inhibitor HIV medications, barbiturates, Cyclosporine, Rifamycin antibiotics, some seizure medications, thyroid replacement medications, several antifungal medications, antibiotics, or St. John's Wort.
To reduce the risk of side effects, inform your doctor about the different medications you are using, which includes prescription medications, over the counter medicines, and herbal supplements before you buy Evamist.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
