    Combipatch Information

    What is Combipatch?

    Combipatch is a prescription drug used to treat symptoms of menopause and vasomotor symptoms. Combipatch belongs to a class of drugs called estrogen/progestins HRT.

    Combipatch is a transdermal patch containing the active ingredients estradiol and norethindrone. Estradiol is a form of estrogen hormone and norethindrone is a form of progestin hormone.

    Combipatch is available in the strengths 50mcg/140mcg and 50mcg/250mcg.

    Combipatch is also available under the brand names Estalis and Estalis Continuous. They are all manufactured by the same brand manufacturer, Novartis and they all contain the same formulation and active ingredients. The difference in name is for marketing purposes where brand manufacturers chose to market the same drug in different countries using different brand names.

    How to use Combipatch/Combipatch Dosage?

    Combipatch is applied to the skin twice weekly every 3 to 4 days. When applied to the skin, the drug is slowly released from the patch into the skin at an even rate.

    The lowest strength of Combipatch is used first (50mcg/140mcg) and the strength will only be increased if adequate relief is not obtained with the lower strength.

    Combipatch should be applied to clean, dry, smooth (no folds) skin on the lower abdomen. The sites of application should be rotated such that there is at least one week between using the same application site. Remove the old patch before applying the new patch to a different area.
