Dizziness from Vivelle Patch

I have been back on the Vivelle Patch sice last September. Never before was I becoming dizzy. About 2 months ago, I started with transient dizziness. Now, it occurs if I turn over in bed, suddenly turn my head or for no reason at all. It is now happening daily.....several times a day. Yesterday, I was eating lunch, when suddenly I became dizzy and woozy. I sat there for a few minutes until it passed.

I noticed on the vivelle patch box, it says it may cause dizziness. I was trying to find out more information and saw where dizziness is listed as one of the "severe warning signs" of vivelle dot.

Does anyone know, what the severe warning sign means......warning sign of what? What is the dizziness warning us is happening or is going to happen?

I would contact your doctor about the dizziness, especially if this is a new symptom. I have had some problems with some dizziness in the past, mine wasn't related to my hrt, but to other issues I have going on. I do think you should have it checked out.

Dizziness from Vivelle Patch


I LOVE the Vivelle patch but it does not agree with me. I get dizzy on every available dose, from .0375 to .1mg. I love the Vivelle Dot but for some reason I can not seem to tolerate it. In fact I stopped wearing it for six weeks and put one on about a week ago (.0375) and within 12 hours the dizziness was back. It took me a while to figure out what was causing my dizziness because I did not have it for about the first four months I was on the patch (last year).

But last week I thought I would try it one last time - I was sitting with my husband, eating lunch, when something caught my attention outside and as I turned my head, yep, there it was, that same old dizziness/off balance feeling. I am able to self correct pretty quickly, but it happens when I turn my head while driving, or turning my head while watching TV, etc. I forgot how weird that feeling was until I did not have it for six weeks. I have sworn off the patch for that and other reasons, but I miss the steady flow of estrogen along with the total ease of using it. I just loved it but I can't seem to tolerate it at all anymore.

You may want to call your doctor to see if they would want to adjust your dose or have you try a different delivery method for a bit to see if that helps. I was off the patch for about five days when I noticed that dizziness was completely gone; it was wonderful.
