VIVELLE DOT experiences....want to share?

HI! My doctor recently put me on VIVELLE DOT .1 mg. I've finally gotten the hang of getting it to stick, and I like the clear little patch better than some of the others that I've seen. However, I'm having a hard time with nausea and this weird taste in my mouth. Anybody else have any of these things? Any tips from an experienced VIVELLE DOT user would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Kel-

I am currently on the Vivelle Dot, 0.025 mg which is the new low dose that they have come out with. I also had issues with the patches adhering to my abdomen and after using different brands some of which I was found to have an allergy to the adhesive, and some just would not stay put. When tyring to find the perfect patch I also had some of the same issues you are having which thankfully went away when I began using the lower does.

The great news is that the lower dose is really awesome for me and since I had endo I was really unsure about using any tyoe of HRT.

Since everyone responds so differently to medications ask you doctor about the issues you are having and see about the possibility of a change if they approve, it might be worth a try, but bear in mind that there is always a period of adjustment with these patches and you do not want to keep chainging back and forth and messing with the doses every other week!

Good luck
