(There is some question as to whether the fluctuating hormone levels from a pill may contribute to mood problems.) I would suggest that you might want to try another patch, since the Climara
did not work for you, and see if that is better for you.
Pro delivers a lower dose of estradiol (0.045 rag/day of estradiol and 0.015 rag/day of levonorgestrel) than CombiPatch, the first estrogen and progestin patch on the U.S.
Two randomized, controlled clinical trials showed that Climara
Pro significantly reduced the frequency and severity of hot flashes as early as 1 week into therapy, and that 90% of women experienced an 80% reduction in hot flashes by week 12, according to Berlex Inc., a U.S.
These include Prempro 0.3/1.5 and Prempro 0.45/1.5 with lower doses of estrogen and progestin, as well as Climara
PRO, femhrt, Activella and Angeliq.
