climara patch running out too soon?

Hello all, hope everyone is recovering and feeling better than the last time I posted!! I am going on week 6 this week and doing quite well. My dr. put me on the climara patch and it seems to agree with me. I was wondering though, the patch is soposed to be changed once a week, I start feeling aches and pains, nervousness, and tire easily after only 5 days. estrogen running out too soon symptoms? then, when i apply a new patch i have a day of anxiety and a hung over feeling. I feel the best mid-week when my levels are probably adjusted and stable. any thoughts?

Hi little lisa!

It's good to hear your recovery is going well. I'm sorry, though, that you're having problems with your estrogen levels. No fun!

You may be right on target in thinking that your patch is running out too soon. There are other members who have experienced the same. One easy solution, if your doctor and insurance company will go along with it, is to have your prescription written so that you can change it more frequently. I saw in a previous post of yours that your insurance won't cover Vivelle Dot which would be my other suggestion for something to try. Vivelle Dot is changed twice a week and has a good reputation for lasting the fully prescribed time of 3 1/2 days.

Let your doctor know what's happening and see what he/she suggests. Keep us posted on how you're doing, okay?

Yes, I had that rpoblem with all patches. I didn't know to ask for a script for climara twice a week then. My dr. has not been very imaginative about all this.

Also, I was told (after the fact) that you should leave the old patch on for at least 12 hours after you put a new one one.

Some women do leave the old patch on for a while after placing on the new one to help level out any possible fluctuations that can be noticed while waiting for the new patch to "kick in", for lack of a better term. I've done it both ways and really haven't noticed any difference except for the times when I'm really late changing a patch. On those days I've learned that it's better to leave the old one in place in addition to putting on the new one or else I'll end up with a pretty nasty headache.

I hope this helps!
