What If I Take an Overdose of Menostar?

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Vaginal bleeding (in females).
(Click Menostar Overdose for more information.)

How Should Menostar Be Stored?

Menostar 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 Menostar 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 of Menostar?

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

Strengths of Menostar

Menostar patches come in one strength, designed to provide 14 mcg (0.014 mg) of estradiol per day.
