Apparently I was the typical menopausal woman. Hot flashes, irritability, insomnia, mild depression. I started the patch 3 weeks ago. My hot flashes immediately stopped. I am sleeping better.

I thought I had been bitten by a trill ... Show Full Comment

I am 46 and in menopause. While I have been symptom free (a blessing for sure) I am concerned about bone loss etc. Been on the patch for several months and it has been ok, it's the lowest dose but had a period for 3 weeks. I decided to cut it in half and it's been much better.

I have a call in to the doctor to switch to a estradio ... Show Full Comment

Good early results with combipatch-mostly symptom ... Show Full Comment

I am 55 and going through full blown menopause with very severe symptoms, night sweat, constant hot flashes and anxiety, depression. My doctor prescribed the combipatch and within a few days I felt normal and happy again. It saved my sanity... The only side effects I feel is weight gain. So I am trying to cut back on portions and exercising more.
