VivelleDot has been a lifesaver for me.

I loved the Vivelle-dot. Doctor recently cut dosage in half since I am getting older. Now suffering with hot flashes and night sweats.
Working / Worked
I could not take the pill form of estrogen because it caused too severe of mood swings and I kept forgetting to take them, so I switched to the patch. It was great, discrete and gave me zero mood swings. Removing them left a black mark from the adhesive for a couple of days. My favourite form of taking estrogen but I had to switch methods because once the dose reached too high the patches began giving extremely itchy rashes within hours of being put on the skin.
