This medication is a hormone (estrogen) primarily used by women to alleviate symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. These symptoms arise due to the body’s decreased production of estrogen. This medication may also be prescribed for women who are unable to produce sufficient estrogen, as seen in conditions like hypogonadism or primary ovarian failure. Some estrogen products may also be recommended for women post-menopause to prevent bone loss (osteoporosis).

Uses and Dosage

Peel off the backing from the patch and apply it to a clean, dry area of the body as directed. Only certain areas of the body are suitable for patch application, and different brands of patches may be applied to different areas. If you have any questions about where to apply the patch, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Press the patch firmly in place for approximately 10 seconds to ensure it adheres properly. Do not apply the patch on the breast or on oily, broken, or irritated skin. Avoid applying the patch to areas of the skin that might be easily rubbed off, such as the waistline.

Follow your doctor’s instructions for medication use. Typically, the patch is replaced twice a week (every 3 to 4 days).

Adhere to the dosing schedule meticulously.

The dosage is determined by your medical condition and response to treatment.

When replacing the patch, be sure to apply the new one to a different area. Wait at least 1 week before applying a patch to the same area. Fold the old patch in half with the sticky side together and discard it in the trash away from children and pets. Do not flush the patch down the toilet.

If a patch falls off, reapply it to a different area. If the patch does not stick completely, apply a new one and wear it for the remaining scheduled period. Do not wear two patches simultaneously.

Use this medication regularly to derive the most benefit from it. To help you remember, change the patch on the same days each week. You may find it helpful to mark your calendar as a reminder.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
