I have been using this .5 mg patch for the past 11 days- changing it every 3 days- and I feel significantly better as far as mood and I sleep very well. That is a miracle.

Comment:
This was great - it stopped the night sweats, depression/mood swings and hot flashes at a dosage of 14 mcg. I stopped taking it after 2.5 years due to concern over long term usage and my hot flashes and night sweats are back in full force but my moods are fine.

Comment:
Like the patch. Put it on and forget it. Drawbacks are my skin gets irritated wherever I put it so I have to find new spots and thats the second problem. Finding unexposed skin wher it won't rub off.
