Brief Answer:
should not occur with one extra dose

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Elestrin is a estrogen replacement hormone used for menopause.

There are potential psychiatric side effects such as cycling between depression and mania, nervousness and irritability.
The mood cycling is more likely if there is a history of severe depression.

One additional pump would not likely produce any of these affects or worsen your anxiety issues.
Chronic overuse may result in this problem but it is not likely to occur with one extra dose.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any additional questions
