Vivelle Dot wearing off too quickly?

AJinNHJuly 20, 2013

I've been on the .0375 patch for 3 months now and recently a pattern has been emerging where I'm having moodiness and insomnia at 2 to 2 1/2 days into a new patch (I change them every 3 1/2 days). Not flashing again, just warmer at times.

Has anyone else experienced this too? I'm wondering if I need to change the patches sooner or switch to a larger dose. I don't want to increase the dose if its just an absorption issue. I wear the patch on my lower abdomen.

Otherwise, I'm really happy with the Vivelle Dot, it really gave me my life back and so far no side effects.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I don't have much to offer in the way of advice but I used the climara patch a few years ago and I remember the instructions saying if the patch comes off to reapply another. My patch only came off once as I recall. They are very durable.

You would need to check back with your doctor regarding dosage.
I'm glad you found something you can use without side effects
Wish I could....good luck to you..
