- Estramon is available in patches containing estrogen (estradiol), and is prescribed for various reasons after menopause. It helps ease moderate to severe hot flashes that occur when estrogen levels drop, causing uncomfortable sensations of warmth and sweating in the face, neck, and chest. It’s also used to manage changes in and around the vagina during menopause.
- For women experiencing a shortage of naturally produced estrogen before menopause due to certain conditions, Estramon can be beneficial. Additionally, it’s used to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, a condition where bones become weak and fragile due to menopause.
- Regular discussions with your healthcare provider about the necessity and continuation of Estramon treatment are important to ensure it’s the right choice for you. If Estramon is solely used for vaginal changes, discussing alternative topical treatments with your healthcare provider is recommended.
- Initiate treatment with Estramon 0.0375 mg/day, applied to the skin twice a week, to alleviate moderate to severe symptoms linked to menopause, such as hot flashes or discomfort in the vulvar and vaginal regions. Your doctor may adjust the dosage based on your response to the treatment.
- If it’s for preventing postmenopausal osteoporosis, your doctor might start you on Estramon 0.025 mg/day.
- Remember to apply Estramon to a clean, dry area of your lower abdomen or buttocks. Avoid using it on your breasts.
