    I'm 47 and having been using Climera for 3 mos to combat the misery of menopause: sweats, rapid heartbeat, no sleep, constant sadness, dryness and itchiness. All symptoms are gone. However, I've had 3 times of bleeding in 9 weeks which I don't enjoy as I cant predict it in advance like a normal period. The first 2 weeks I had trouble keeping it in place at my waistline. Now I apply ... Show Full Comment

    I am on the generic manufactured by 3M Drug Delivery Systems and distributed by Alvogen. I suffered premature ovarian failure and was prescribed this giant patch. It certainly makes me feel better emotionally and physically, but by no means does this thing stay on for a week. Also, it is hideous and gets black gunk stuck around the edges by the second day. My boyfriend has taken to asking me w ... Show Full Comment

    I started on this medication and was very hopeful but had a dull constant headache but decided I would stick with it thinking my body was having to adjust but the headache continued after two weeks use and also was having lots of abdominal issues, gas, belching. I found myself having to take lots of anti-gas products and Tylenol for the headache which didn't always help. I then started getting ... Show Full Comment

    This patch does what it says. Hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and sleep issues are gone. It took about 2 weeks to "kick in." I use a Tegaderm pouch over the patch to make it stick for the full seven days.

    I've been on this med since 1995. I got hot flashes every hour lasting 15 minutes. Yes, I'm 70 and still get them if I don't stay on this. My rx doesn't cover so I've tried pills. They work but make my legs swell. So I pay full price for the patch. Every once in awhile I do get a bad batch where the adhesive is bad. I call the mfg pharma and they replace. This patch is estroge ... Show Full Comment
