I went off Vivelle Dot 0.1 in Nov.2011, because I lost my job. The sweats were and are still horrible! I just got a new prescription of the same thing and have had it on for 2 days. When will the sweats stop? Oh yea, I was on them to begin with due to total hysterectomy.

In general, you can expect relief from your symptoms fairly quickly. You may begin to feel relief from hot flashes in 1 to 3 weeks.
Hot flashes and night sweats are likely to become less frequent and intense. This trend in improvement should continue over time.
Relief from vaginal symptoms—dryness, burning, and itching—may take 3 weeks.
If after 6 to 8 weeks you are feeling no improvement in your symptoms you should see your doctor.
