    I have used for 15 years. Works great! For those that have problems keeping it on try washing that area with a non oil soap like ivory and make sure to dry area before applying. I found this has helped greatly.

    I have been on this for 19 years after a full hysterectomy. I have tried coming off several times last time determined to persevere. I became irritable, unbearable hot sweats day and night, no sex drive. I am back on and will not be coming off again.

    I have been using the patch for about 15 years. I am on the 0.25 level and I cut that in half. It has relieved all of my menopausal symptoms and it helps with my knees. I have gone without the patch and have found that I have problems with my knees and joints. I put it back on and in a few days my knee pain goes away. It has improved my quality of life tremendously!

    I thought this was going to end my nightmare of hot flashes & nightsweats, it might have if I could keep it on my skin! I all but duct taped it to my skin. If you are an active person this is not the treatment to use. I'm still looking for the right HRT treatment, I feel like I'm going crazy. Any suggestions?
