Description

Climara Pro Patch is a female hormone therapy patch that’s used to resupply the body with estrogen to improve post-menopausal symptoms. It contains two female hormones: estrogen (from the active ingredient estradiol) and progestin (from the active ingredient levonorgestrel). After menopause occurs, the female endocrine system is unable to produce a sufficient amount of estrogen due to changes in the body.

The active ingredients in Climara Pro Patch are administered by applying the patch to the skin, where the medical ingredients can be absorbed into the skin. There are many other options for post-menopausal treatment that have different routes of administration, such as oral tablets or vaginal inserts. Such options are sometimes considered first-line options. You should talk to your doctor to find out which one works best for you before using Climara Pro Patch.

Combination Therapy

The combination of estradiol and levonorgestrel helps combat symptoms occurring after menopause and reduces the risk of other conditions developing as a result of the changes to the body’s hormones. Estradiol helps maintain healthy levels of estrogen in the body to reduce symptoms caused by hormone fluctuations, while levonorgestrel supplies the body with the progestin it needs, reducing the risk of uterine cancer.

Who should not use this medication?

Tell your doctor if you have any hypersensitivities prior to using Climara Pro Patch and seek medical help if you have an allergic reaction. Signs of an allergic reaction include: swelling of the face or throat, red skin, rashes, trouble breathing.

Smoking:

Do not smoke while using this patch. Nicotine increases the risk of adverse events including strokes and blood clots.

If you have recently had surgery, or if you are about to go into surgery, then it may not be the best time to use Climara Pro Patch. Prolonged laying or sitting can increase the risk of blood clotting. Tell your doctor about any surgeries planned so that they can ensure the safe use of this patch.

If you are receiving an MRI scan, you must tell the staff that you are using Climara Pro Patch as it can interfere with the result.

Climara pro patch withdrawal

Hormone Replacement Therapies (HRTs) such as Climara are known to cause withdrawal symptoms if stopped abruptly. The symptoms are very similar to those experienced soon after menopause, including hot flashes, fatigue, and irritability. This is because the symptoms are caused by a sudden, massive decline in the amount of estrogen in the body. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about how to mitigate and reduce these symptoms if you need to stop using an HRT for any reason.

Climara Pro Patch Doses

Climara Pro Patch is applied to the skin once per week. For proper use, the patch should be applied to different locations each time and should be replaced on the same day every week. Do not apply more than one patch at a time.

To apply, place the adhesive side down on a relatively flat, smooth portion of skin. Avoid applying Climara Pro Patch to any areas that could chafe against it and rub it off. If your patch falls off simply use a new one for the remainder of the weekly duration. Ask your doctor for more detailed instructions if you are unsure.
