How Should This Product Be Stored?

Minivelle 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 Minivelle 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 the reach of children and pets (do not flush it). The used patch still contains some estradiol.

What If I Miss a Dose of Minivelle?

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