    Reviewed Minivelleon 3/10/2017Clean skin and then swab it with alcohol. Some patches are stickier than others; simetimes a whole box is drier than usual. Medical tape or a bandaid will keep it in place. Dry skin in winter is less sticky also. I put mine on firm not fatty areas. Get yout thyroid checked. Estrogen is a thyroid antagonist, so if you are on thyroid replacement, you will probably need to up your dose!

    Reviewed Minivelleon 8/19/2016Typically the insurance company will only cover a portion of a brand name drug, so as a result you could pay over $100 for a months supply

    Reviewed Minivelleon 7/10/2016My Dr. changed me to minivelle from Vivelle Dot, which I had been on for several years. I now have hot flashes and hair growing on my face. I say it doesn't work.
