Product Details

Description:

Chemical Name: ESTRADIOL (es-tra-DYE-ol)

VIVELLE DOT is a female hormone usually given to women who no longer are able to produce the proper amount of hormones such as estrogen. It can help control moderate to severe symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and atrophy. VIVELLE DOT also helps reduce the risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis, which is a major health concern for women after menopause.

The generic Vivelle Dot patches are larger and oval in shape.

Directions:

The dosage for VIVELLE DOT will be different for each patient. Closely follow the directions on the label. If your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so. The amount of medication that you take depends on the strength of the medicine. Also, the number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and the length of time you take the medicine depend on the medical problem for which you are using the medicine

Cautions:

All estrogen therapies carry risk because they can increase the chances of getting cancer of the uterus (womb). You should report any unusual vaginal bleeding right away while you are taking estrogens. Vaginal bleeding after menopause may be a warning sign of cancer of the uterus (womb).

Do not use estrogens (with or without progestins) to prevent heart disease, heart attacks or strokes. Using estrogens (with or without progestins) may increase your chances of getting heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer, and blood clots. Using estrogens may increase your risk of dementia (decline in memory and thinking skills).

VIVELLE DOT (estrogen therapy) should not be used if you:

  • are allergic to CombiPatch or any of its ingredients
  • have unusual vaginal bleeding
  • currently have or have had certain cancers, including cancer of the breast or uterus
  • had a stroke or heart attack in the recent past (for example, in the past year)
  • currently have or have had blood clots
  • currently have or have had liver problems
  • may be pregnant
To make sure you can safely use VIVELLE DOT, tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:
  • high blood pressure, angina, or heart disease

Same quality, 1/3 the price
This product provides the same quality at one third of the price that I was paying at the local pharmacy. The patch is the same size, clear in color and stays attached, even after bathing.

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
