29 Oct 2012 So hard to pin point whether some of my symptoms are a reflection of life's difficulties and hardships. Or even other medical conditions. Also want to point out abdominal cramping.

13 Sep 2012 At first this was a wonderful drug, but I increased the does from .05 to .075 and after 6 months I am having mostly nerve issues. I have been tested for Parkinsons' MS, and have been seeing a Chiropractor for 3 months. I accidently ran out of the dots on vacation and guess what... after a few days I felt better. But all the typical menopausal symtoms returned, so back to the dot, but with a lower dosage.

23 Aug 2012 I don't mind taking this drug, but I am concerned about my weight gain that I can't seem to lose excersizing 4 nights a week, and watching what I eat. My neck is even getting fatter! I have shortness of breath at time, tired a lot, and dizzy spells on occasion. the response I get is welcome to old age! I am only 44! That is not old yet! This does help with vaginal dryness, and sex is more enjoyable since my surgery. I also feel better overall except for the above mentioned problems/side effects.

08 Aug 2012 I have been on Vivelle-Dot for about a year. I have gained over 15 pounds! I have tried juicing, dieting and healthy diet but can't lose not a pound! I have done light excersize due to my back but no weight loss. My hot flashes are gone but I have had breakthrough bleeding, breast swollen, almost a whole size! After researching the long term side effects, gallbladder, pancreas and cancers, I have taken myself off the patch. I've been of one month and just feel better although my appetite is still the same. I will live with the hot flashes and give up the other nasty side effects and hopefully be able to lose weight on a plant based diet! If I was given the choice again, I would not use the patch.
