Are headaches and hot flashes typical reactions when you stop taking vivelle?
5 Nov 2009
ghost123; Yes those are common side affects from stopping this medication. It has estrogen in it. When that is stopped it is like your body is going into menopause. If there is any way that your Dr can gradually take you off of this, I htink that would be the best. Because the side affects can be very uncomfortable, and you do not need to go through that. Good luck
