Estrogen Patch brand comparison
September 5, 2007 11:15 PM Subscribe
I would like to hear from anyone who has tried both the Vivelle estrogen patch and the Climara estrogen patch at identical dosages, to find out what were the differences between the two brands, which one did you prefer and why. Also, anyone using Vivelle Dot: since it is to be replaced 2 x/wk, how do you divide the weekdays evenly without having to use different days each week?

I was wondering if there were any differences between Vivelle at .0375 mg (the weekly Vivelle patch, not the DOT) and the Climara at .0375 (not generics). Also wondering if women who used Vivelle dot like it--the size sounds very nice, but not sure if I'd want to reapply twice a week, which would be hard to fit into a routine schedule (e.g. sunday/wednesday? )
