difference between climara and vivelle dot

Hi, Can anyone tell me the difference between Climara and vivelle dot patches... I know the climara doe not stick as well, but as far as the delivery of the hormones... like rate of hormone absortion... I am having problems with vivelle dot,... also in 3 days I get really mean when time to change it ( I was never like that before even off hormones) and I had tried Menostar and was never like that,...so I dont think it is from lack of estrogen... Any info would help, I see dr. on fri.. Thanks Ladies...

Hi Junie,
The Climara is soy based, while the Vivelle Dot is yam based. That is the main difference.

If you're feeling symptoms just before it is time to change the patch, it may be that you need to change it a bit sooner. We all have different absorption rates, you may be absorbing the patch at a more rapid rate than is recommended. It is not unusual to have to change the patch earlier than the norm.
