More Details on Alora

Alternatives

Alora is not the only available method of relieving menopausal symptoms. Other options include:
 
  • Coping strategies (such as wearing lighter clothes for hot flashes or using a vaginal lubricant for dryness)
  • Other medications, such as other estrogens or combinations of estrogens with progestins
  • Natural remedies, including herbal supplements and "bioidentical" hormone replacement.
     
(Click Alora Alternatives for more information about other menopause treatment options.)
 

What If I Take an Overdose?

People who take too much Alora may experience the following symptoms:
 
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Vaginal bleeding (in females).
     
(Click Alora Overdose for more information.)
 

How Should Alora Be Stored?

Alora patches should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep each patch in its original pouch until you are ready to use it. Keep Alora and all other medications out of the reach of children. Dispose of a used patch by folding it in half and throwing it away out of reach of children and pets (do not flush it). The used patch still contains some estradiol.
 

What If I Miss a Dose?

If you forget to change your Alora patch, simply change it as soon as you remember. Don't forget to remove the old patch when applying a new one.
 

Strengths

Alora patches come in the following strengths:
 
  • Alora 0.025 mg/24 hours
  • Alora 0.05 mg/24 hours
  • Alora 0.075 mg/24 hours
  • Alora 0.1 mg/24 hours.
     
The strength of Alora patches is given in mg per day. In other words, an Alora 0.025 mg patch provides approximately 0.025 mg of estradiol every day.
