The medication has been in use for several years.
Vivelle Dot is a transdermal patch primarily used in the treatment of the following female health-related issues:
- Defective secretion of the ovaries
- Low estrogen levels after the surgical removal of ovaries
- Primary ovarian failure
- Wasting of the vulva tissues
- Inflammation in the vagina due to the loss of hormone stimulation in the area
- Prevention of post-menopausal osteoporosis
- Post-menopausal urethral atrophy
The medication is also used in the so-called change of life symptoms among women.
As part of hormone replacement therapy, Vivelle Dot can reduce the symptoms associated with menopause including vaginal dryness and hot flashes. The patch works by slowly releasing replacement estrogen in women whose natural production of estrogen has been compromised (i.e., reduced).
Ask your doctor about the safety of using medications taken by mouth, injected and absorbed through the skin when you’re using Vivelle Dot for treatment of symptoms in and around the vagina only.
Read the label or leaflet that comes with the product before using it. Ask your doctor or pharmacist when you have questions about its use, safety and side effects.
Be sure that the skin where the patch will be applied is clean and dry. Peel off the patch’s backing, press it firmly on the skin for 1o seconds to ensure it stays on, and replace it as directed, usually every 3-4 days.
Common side effects of Vivelle Dot use include skin irritation or redness on the application site, breast tenderness, headache, nausea and/or vomiting, and weight loss. Tell your doctor when these symptoms persist or worsen.
