Table of contents:

Oesclim Patch is a type of estradiol patch used for the management of menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings. It is also used as an aid for treating osteoporosis. It is typically prescribed for women who have gone through menopause and have low levels of estrogen.

Oesclim Patch belongs to the class of medications known as estrogen replacement therapy. It works by delivering synthetic estrogen hormone into the body to alleviate menopausal symptoms.

Use and Dosage

Oesclim Patch is applied to clean, dry skin on the lower abdomen or buttocks once a week, and it slowly releases estradiol into the body over a period of several days.

To apply the patch:

  1. Choose a clean and dry area of intact skin that is not oily, damaged, irritated, or exposed to the sun. To avoid irritation, do not apply to the same site on the skin 2 times in a row.
  2. Tear open the pouch containing the patch rather than using scissors: if you accidentally cut the patch, it will be useless.
  3. Remove the protective layer. Apply the patch to the selected area immediately. Avoid touching the adhesive.
  4. Use your fingers to hold the patch in place for about 10 seconds and make sure that the patch is affixed to your skin, especially around its edges.

If you forget to apply or change the patch, apply it as soon as you remember. But, if it is near the day when you usually change the patch, apply it, and change it again on your typical day. Do not wear two patches simultaneously. If you are unsure of what to do when you forget to apply or change the patch, seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist.
