Climara Pro HRT Medicine
If you have hot flashes or other menopausal symptoms, your healthcare provider may recommend a medication called Climara Pro® (estradiol/levonorgestrel patch). This product is also approved to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.
As a type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), Climara Pro contains an estrogen and a progestin hormone. This medication comes in the form of a patch that is applied to the skin once a week. It is specifically designed for women who still have a uterus. Breast pain, vaginal bleeding, and skin reactions are some of the most common side effects of this drug.
