Menopause Home > Estraderm Patch Information
Prior to the product being discontinued, Estraderm® (estradiol patch) was used to treat several menopause-related symptoms, to prevent osteoporosis in post-menopausal women, and to replace hormones in younger women. The manufacturer decided to stop making this medicated patch for business reasons, not because it was unsafe.
While the Estraderm patch is no longer available, your healthcare provider has information on possible alternatives. Other brands of estradiol patches may work just as well.
