    Received the Mylan brand in my last refill. Dosage was working fine and was happy previously. The new batch...they must be using cheap adhesive. Horrible itchy after a few hours and big welt. Has nothing to do with drug. Poor manufacturing.

    I have been on this patch for years. I am using Climara. It has worked well in the past but the last several months I have had problems with it adhering through the week. The adhesive leaks out and sticks to everything one week--therefore the patch comes off on bedding or underwear. The next week it doesn't stay stuck for the 7 days and I end up with hot flashes. Going to try a different ... Show Full Comment

    Iâ??ve been using this particular patch for almost a year. It handles hot flashes and I can sleep very well. I have a couple problems with it. One itâ??s huge, but at least itâ??s clear. Two,the adhesive is all around the outer edges making it stick to my underwear. That leads me to my third complaint, it doesnâ??t stick to my skin all the time. My skin is clean before applying ...

    The brand Mylan patch is leaving big red welps on my skin. It burns and itches. While the first box worked great, I seem to have developed an allergy to this brand. I could see a difference with the estrogen so while it is uncomfortable, I am still wearing it until the pharmacy can replace it. My pharmacy at first just gave me a different lot number- to no avail. Estrogen is great now I need to ... Show Full Comment
