I am still new to hrt, trialling different patches and strengths... I tried Climara first and it didnt stick. So I tried Vivelle dot - worked great - stuck like glue!! Apparently, i found out today, Vivelle is being discontinued (at least here in Canada). So I am now on the Estradot - and so far it is even better.... Smaller and even better adherance. Just a heads-up!!
Hi Maureen! Estradot is the Canadian version of the Vivelle dot. They are both made by the same company. I'm kind of surprised to hear you were able to get the Vivelle dot at all up there! Did you get it at a pharmacy, or as DR's office samples?
I've heard wonderful things about Estradot... hope it works great for you!
Yup, from the pharmacy. Tried to get refill at pharmacy and they had none. The pharmacist called another store and they had 5 boxes. But, in the end I took the script to yet another store and they, too, were out, but pharmacist said Estradot was their autosub for Vivelle. She was also the one who told me Vivelle was being discontinued. So far, I love the Estradot!! It is tiny and the adhesion seems really good. We will see after I go to the gym today!!
