What is Combipatch?

CombiPatch 0.05 mg-0.25 mg/24 hr Transdermal
Drug Name: ESTRADIOL/NORETHINDRONE PATCH
Other Brand Names: Combipatch
Uses: This medication is used to reduce menopause symptoms. It helps reduce episodes of flushing and sweating of the upper body and face, commonly called hot flashes. It also helps treat dryness, itching, and burning around the vagina. These symptoms occur when a woman's body no longer makes the usual amount of female hormone (estrogen) such as in women after menopause and in young women who have had their ovaries removed or who have a condition called primary ovarian failure. This medication is a combination of 2 female hormones: an estrogen (estradiol) and a progestin (norethindrone). A progestin is added to estrogen replacement therapy to reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus. A woman who has had her uterus removed does not need progestin and should not be treated with this combination medication. If you need treatment only for vaginal menopause symptoms (e.g., vaginal dryness), products applied directly inside the vagina should be considered before medications that are taken by mouth, absorbed through the skin, or injected.
