    I have experienced a decrease in the intensity of my hot flashes. I've gained 20lbs in the month and a half since I starting using this patch. The patch itches and burns and leaves a rash. I've only used it on my upper buttock. I am afraid to place it on my stomach.

    Used on my bottom. Felt great. After about 18 months started developing rash under patch off and on, then came the edema, then severe back pain and finally debilitating pelvic pain. It wasn't until I stopped using it because of the rashes that I realized it was all connected. Two weeks after stopping it all was normal. Went back to pill and lower estrogen with night sweats. At least the pain ... Show Full Comment

    Caused a very itchy rash when applied to my abdomen after only 2 days. Switched to upper buttock and after 4 days another very itchy rash. Does not say on well. Rashes took 2 weeks to calm down and disappear even after treating them.

    Original large round patch worked well and was easy to use. Recently it was replaced with a smaller oblong patch that is hard to apply and will not stay on. Also causes rashes on the abdomen.

    Comment:
    I started using this patch after hormonal changes due to a benign brain tumor surgery near my pituitary gland. At first the patch didn't stay on at all. As time went on it seems to stay on longer after showers and making sure to repress the edges to make it stay. Over time I have developed rashes on the areas it has been applied to but they slowly disappear. Side effects I've noticed a ... Show Full Comment
