I have been on the vivelle dot.025 for over 30 yrs and find that it has kept me from mood swings, nervousness, night sweats and weight gain. I am now 65 and think it best to come off I am getting calf pain and numbness in my hands.

I am 67 years old. My uterus was removed in 1981, and have been on some form of hormone therapy since. Then in 2010, because of large fibroid tumors, I had a bilateral oophorectomy and put on the Vivelle patch. Dr just called today to say to use one more patch then get off of the because it's not recommended for women over 65. Is this true? I cannot find any info on this.

I am 36. I had my total hysterectomy 09-2007 due to endometriosis. I have been on a replacement patch since I was wheeled out of the OR. I have only tried one other generic brand and didn't like it as it was larger and didn't stay on as long. I have also been on several different strengths due to hot flashes but have to remain on the .025mg as the endometriosis seems to come back on anythi ... Show Full Comment
