Climara is a prescription medication that comes in the form of a skin patch. Climara is a skin patch that contains an estrogen called estradiol. Estrogens are female sex hormones produced by the ovaries. Estrogens are necessary for many processes in the body.

Climara skin patches are used to treat certain symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, burning, and irritation. Climara is also used to prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis, or to treat ovarian disorders.

Uses and Dosage

The patch is applied once or twice weekly as directed by a doctor. Be sure to rotate the location of the patch each time to avoid skin irritation. To use the Climara patch, follow the instructions provided by your doctor or pharmacist. The patch is applied to a clean, dry area of skin on the lower stomach or top of the buttocks once a week. Be sure to rotate the location of the patch each time to avoid irritation.

To apply the patch, first, remove the patch from its protective liner and apply it to the skin. Press the patch firmly in place for about 10 seconds, making sure it adheres to the skin. Avoid applying the patch to areas with cuts, scrapes, or rashes, and do not place it on the breasts or waistline. Also, be sure to remove the old patch before applying the new one.
