Minivelle vs. Vivelle Dot

I am currently on Vivelle Dot (and have been since my TAH BSO in 2008) and just found out about Minivelle from the pharmacy when I got my last prescription of Vivelle Dot this week. Has anyone switched from Vivelle Dot to Minivelle? If so...has it been good, bad or ugly?

Re: Minivelle vs. Vivelle Dot

What is the difference in dosage? or is it just different in size?

Re: Minivelle vs. Vivelle Dot

I switched from Vivelle to Minivelle last month. Your dosage will be the same (unless you need to change it for other reasons). The Minivelle is round instead of rectangular. They said the Minivelle is smaller, but I think it's about the same. I found that the mini is harder to apply and it does not stick as well. I have not seen a difference in the effectiveness of the mini vs Vivelle and I prefer the Vivelle, but the mini is not all that different. Hope this helps!!
