I have suddenly gained alot of weight around my middle. This has happened since I started on Vivelle and am thinking of switching to Climara. Will this help?

Weight gain is not a reported side effect of taking Climara, although it may cause swelling or water retention -- up to 13% of the people who take this med.
However, please do double confirm it with the doc/pharmacist who shall switch your med from Vivelle to Climara.
Take care, best wishes!
