... and now Climara because they stopped making the Vivelle patches 0.05. And I want to stop using the patches, because I have high Triclycerides and started with Thyroids problems and I take Amitriptyline. I sopped but I can not handle the hot-flashes. May I get cancer in my buttock or skin for using the patches this long time? I need your support and help
There is always a risk associated with taking a medicine for a long period of time.
You need to decide whether the risks associated with taking HRT outweigh the symptoms you experience if you choose not to take HRT.
It sounds as though you may have little choice if your hot flashes are severe.
Discuss this with your doctor and together you can make a decision.
