COMBIPATCH: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “I have been using this product for years, and I hate to go without it. I sleep well, no hot flashes, mood is reasonably stable, no vaginal dryness. At one point when I was without it while waiting for my script to fill, I KNEW how much it was helping me. All good, and it is easy to use. Unfortunately it is expensive and not always in stock. My current medication insurance does not cover the whole price but it will be helpful once I hit my deductible. In the meantime, it is pricey. There are no good coupons that I have been able to find.”

For Atrophic Vaginitis “I have been on the patch for 4 months after trying to use estrogen cream, which did not work and made the burning and pain worse. I did not want to try anything else in my vaginal area, so I suggested the patch to my doctor. I like that it is transdermal and does not go directly through my liver. I am on the higher progestin dose, but am now experiencing spotting, I had a uterine biopsy that was negative, but still am spotting. My OBGYN is considering changing my HRT, but I have had success with this patch. Burning and pain that I experienced every day was gone in just 1 week. I used a vaginal moisturizer for a week or so to help speed up the process. I no longer use a vaginal moisturizer. The hot flashes I had are gone, and I can sleep all night without waking up, no more night sweats. It’s convenient, but the patch leaves a sticky residue you have to scrub off, but well worth the benefits. My insurance did cover this at a 75.00 co-pay, but the coupon online brought it down to 25.00.”

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “It worked well, but is NEVER available. My pharmacy has been ordering it for over a month. Do yourself a favor and find something that isn’t backordered for weeks at a time.”

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “I was post menopausal and dying with night sweats and continual hot flashes. I felt horrible and had for some time. I finally asked my doctor for help and he recommended CombiPatch. It worked wonderfully. I have used it for years and my doctor said I may have to use it the rest of my life. Problem right now is this………… is back ordered from the manufacturer and I am now back into full blown menopause. Oh, my. I am wondering what is wrong and if it will ever be available again. The price may be making it not an option for many. I am going to ask for a replacement even though I loved this medication.”

CONTESSA 99 (taken for 2 to 5 years) January 11, 2016

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “My symptoms were slight including flashes at night and some insomnia. Vaginal dryness was another concern. The patch has really helped. It’s been almost a year since I started the patch. Early on I had some spotting, but that has stopped. I am having some puffiness in the application area.”
