I have been taking Vivelle Dot .025 for 14 months with no problems. Tried a higher doseage but got headaches. Only a 3lb. weight gain in that time period, probably due to age and not the medication.

On 1/23/09 someone asked for help getting the sticky residue off after removing patch. After several years of trying everything I could think of I finally found the solution. Put alcohol onto a cotton swab. Gently massage the area. The residue will come off in seconds!

Comment:
My ovaries were removed in 1999, I've used different Estrogen meds, this was the last one that seems to work without side effects. I also noticed if I forget to change my patch for a week or so, I get depressed. As for weight gain, I'm not sure if this patch caused it or is a result of having no ovaries.
