What is Divigel?
Divigel, with the generic name estradiol, is a topical gel indicated to treat moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms of menopause, like hot flashes, night sweats, and flushes. This occurs due to the constriction or dilation of blood vessels brought about by the fall of estrogen and progesterone levels.
This is available in Divigel 1.0, 0.5, and 0.25 gram-filled single-dose foil packets.
How does Divigel work?
This estradiol gel is absorbed by the skin and goes into the bloodstream. This medication acts by reducing the elevated follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and gonadotropins through a negative feedback mechanism. It also helps in developing and maintaining the female reproductive system and secondary sexual characteristics.
How to use
To begin, read the attached Divigel leaflet that comes with this product. Avoid using any topical medications if you have not yet fully understood the drug information and instructions written in the guide given to you. If you need further medical advice or have some queries on how this topical drug works, you can ask your doctor or pharmacist.
You should apply this medication to a clean and dry area of the upper thigh. This is usually prescribed once daily. Alternately apply it on your right and left thigh on each application. Do not apply the gel on broken or irritated skin and other areas like the breast, face, or vagina. Wait for a few minutes until the gel is completely dried. Then, cover the application site with your clothes. Since this medication could be absorbed through the skin, always wash your hands immediately after application to avoid accidentally applying it to other people.
Remember to use this medication regularly and exactly as directed. Make a dosing schedule to avoid missing your Divigel doses. Do not alter your dosing or frequency as it is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Also, you should not stop taking this medication abruptly unless advised by your doctor.

Precautions when using Divigel
Before you begin using this topical drug, you must disclose your complete medical history to your physician, including any history of blood clots, stroke, heart attack, certain cancers, vaginal bleeding of unknown causes, uterus problems, gallbladder disease, angioedema, hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, mineral imbalance, liver disease, seizures, migraine, porphyria, or mental and mood disorders. Some conditions may affect how your system will respond to the treatment. Moreover, you should talk about all the prescription drugs and nonprescription drugs you are taking because of the possible drug interactions with estradiol.
Be watchful for an allergic reaction while using this gel. Avoid using this topical agent if you have a known allergy to estradiol or any inactive ingredients the gel may contain. Discontinue medication and immediately seek emergency help once you experience signs of hypersensitivity response which includes skin rashes, itchiness, swelling of the face and neck, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.
Avoid smoking, using tobacco, or any similar substances that may contain nicotine. This certain substance could increase the risk of high blood pressure, blood clots, heart attack, and stroke, especially among women 35 years of age and older.
Consult your healthcare provider if you will be confined in a certain position for an extended period of time. This includes going on long-haul flights or going through surgery. This is because limited movements could also increase the risk of blood clot formation.
This medication may cause dark and blotchy patches on the face or skin called melasma. This skin condition could be worsened by sun exposure. Limit your time under the sun and avoid indoor tanning. You should also apply sunblock cream and wear protective clothing when going outdoors.
