    Two weeks in I found myself sleeping better, minimal to no hot flashes, more energy and a more youthful glow in which I was very happy!! All of a sudden I started having sever itching at the site with redness, inflammation as well as discoloration of the skin where the patches were.

    Estradiol is a life saver for me. Im so thankful. Since using the patches, i have slept better at night, no more hot flashes! Thank you! I've had more energy, probably because i get a good night sleep now, before i was awaken all through the night with terrible hot flashes, i suffered with them severely through out each day too. Not any more :) I haven had any weight gain or side effects from ... Show Full Comment

    I agree with some of the reviews read. This product is much larger than the patch I used when I began HRT treatment and it doesn't stick well. It comes off after a day or two! I was told this is a generic brand and I believe it. I also notice my scalp itches and my breast are EXTREMELY sore!!
