    I have used Vivelle Dot since its inception. Tried stronger mg dosing via pill-form prescriptions from various manufacturers; none of them worked. I find the Vivelle Dot, since its transdermal, is the best HRT for me and works using a much lower dose. Don't take my Dots away - ever!

    Very easy to use. No side effects DO NOT accept the generic form from Mylan, Their patch made my ears ring so loud they would wake me from sleep. I used their patch for 3 months never realizing that was causing it. Nearly drove me crazy

    The Adhesive seems to wear off after a few days and my doctor prescribed this to change every 7 days and not every 3-4 days.

    Doc put me on this when I had a total hysterectomy 7 years ago. I've been very glad not to have to go through menopause like most of my friends. I took myself off for a few weeks just to see what night-sweats and hot-flashes were like and came back in quick order.
