Vivelle vs Vivelle Dot

I have been on Vivelle Dot 0.1 since my surgery in October. I had ran out of my refills on the original RX and today I took the new hand written RX from my Dr. in to get it filled. I just went to pick it up and it was a different looking box and I started questioning the pharmacist about it. I then realized that the box just said Vivelle 0.1. They said they would have to order the Vivelle Dot and I can pick it up tomorrow.
I was just wondering what is the difference between the Viville vs Vivelle Dot.
I have been doing so well on the Vivelle Dot that I didn't want to take any chances with something else.

(((Lisa))) there's a huge difference. The Vivelle patch is the previous generation's technology as far as how the estradiol is delivered. It's a larger patch and is less efficiently absorbed (ie, they have to put more estradiol in it to deliver the same amount to the patient). Here's a link that explains the differences between the major patches:

I hope this helps.

Thank you, Linda, for the information. It was very informative.

I'm just glad that I questioned the pharmacist about the RX. You really have to be your own advocate when it comes to medical care.

All I knew about the difference was that the dot was smaller. I guess your pharmacist didnt realize there was a big difference either? THis is good info to know!
