    I was on the .0375 and now on .05. It has regulated my sleep and emotions. To easily remove the adhesive, use a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol.

    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.

    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.
