Total hysterectomy 1978 at a young age (Thanks Dalkon Shield!). Started oral meds, then found this product. A life saver for me & family, ;-). Worked perfectly all these yrs, then was removed from market. WHY? My alternative has been Vivelle. Not happy w/sweats & moods! Plus more expensive! Made by same company.

I have been a long term patient on this treatment and experienced additional benefits related to alleviation of cardiac symptoms, continued elasticity of skin, and skin tone. I have been told that the product is no longer available, and have yet to find another estrogen product that produces the same results. I would like to know how to acquire the product, or, is there an accessible replacement with the same comoposition?

Been on this since 1985 and love it. However, I've been told it's not going to marketed anymore. I hope they are wrong as this is the ONLY drug that stopped the hormone swings after surgery. I've been through every other possible means of inducing hormones into my system and this is by far the best for me.

This most likly is not the right dose for me it seemed to work for maybe 2 weeks and then I was back at square one. I had been taking oral medication for menopause prior to wearing this patch. However what I could not understand was that considering how expensive these patches are why Novartis does not include an additional patch as a backup when the estraderm patch begins to come off due to showers or clothing, I am not saying an additional medicated patch but perhaps something similar to a band aid that would fit over the patch to help keep it secure until it is time to change. That in my opinion has been the most diffiult issue with it, it does not stay in place for more than 2 days.
