CombiPatch Hormone Information
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved CombiPatch® (estradiol/norethindrone patch) to:
- Treat hot flashes or night sweats due to menopause
- Treat itching, burning, or dryness in or around the vagina due to menopause
- Replace hormones in younger women whose ovaries do not produce enough hormones, or who have had their ovaries removed.
This hormone replacement patch is applied to a clean, dry area of the stomach twice a week. Try to avoid placing the patch right at your waistline, since your clothes may rub against the patch and loosen it.
It is important to review safety information for CombiPatch with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. This includes being aware of possible side effects and understanding which drugs may interact with this product.
