Storage Methods for Estraderm

Estraderm patches should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep each the patch in its original pouch until you are ready to use it. Keep Estraderm 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 Estraderm patch, simply change it as soon as you remember. Don't forget to remove the old patch when applying a new one.
 

Strengths
