Description

Vivelle DOT Uses 

Vivelle DOT, with the generic name estradiol, is a transdermal system indicated to treat moderate-severe vasomotor symptoms and vulvar & vaginal atrophy due to menopause. It is also used to treat hypoestrogenism secondary to hypogonadism, primary ovarian failure, or castration. It also prevents postmenopausal osteoporosis. 

This is available in Vivelle DOT 0.1 mg/day, 0.075 mg/day, 0.05 mg/day, 0.0375 mg/day, and 0.025 mg/day transdermal system. 

Vivelle DOT Mechanism of Action 

This estrogen works by reducing the release of luteinizing hormone and gonadotropin-releasing hormone from the hypothalamus and gonadotropin release from the pituitary glands. It also acts by increasing the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and certain proteins in the target tissues. This is because this hormone is mainly responsible for the maintenance and development of the female reproductive system and secondary sexual characteristics. 

How to use Vivelle DOT 

To begin, read the Vivelle Dot guide or information leaflet that comes with this product. Avoid using this medication unless you have fully understood the drug information and precautions in the guide provided. If you have further inquiries on how to administer this patch or need more medical advice, you can ask your doctor or pharmacist. 

This patch should be applied to the lower abdomen, just below the waistline. Do not apply a new patch to the same area for at least a week. Make sure the application site is clean and free from oil, powder, or lotion. Tear the pouch open and peel off the backing of the patch. Apply the sticky side to your selected area. Keep your fingers away from the sticky side. Then, press the patch firmly for about 10 seconds to ensure that it will stay in place. 

Remember to use this patch regularly and exactly as directed. Do not alter your Vivelle DOT dosage or length of treatment as it is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.

Precautions when using Vivelle DOT 

Before you begin using this patch, you should disclose your entire medical history to your physician. This includes any history of blood clotting disorders, angioedema, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or triglyceride levels, hypothyroidism, mineral imbalance, lupus, obesity, liver disease, kidney disease, breast cancer, uterus cancer, ovarian cancer, vaginal bleeding of unknown cause, hypoparathyroidism, gallbladder disease, porphyria, seizures, asthma, dementia, or depression. Some diseases or disorders may impact how your body will respond to the treatment. Moreover, you should discuss all prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, supplements, and herbal products you are taking because of possible drug interactions with estrogen. 

During this treatment, be aware of an allergic reaction. Do not use this transdermal patch if you have a known allergy to estradiol or any inactive ingredients it may contain.

This medication may cause dark, blotchy patches on the skin, particularly the face. Sun exposure may worsen this adverse effect. As much as possible, limit your sun exposure and avoid indoor tanning. Wearing protective clothing and applying sunblock cream is also essential when going outside.
