Hi, ask your doctor for the "Dot" estrogen patch. They have to be changed every 2-3 days but I felt the same as you about that huge, beige, estradiol patch. The "Dot" is clear, stays on REALLY well and is actually shaped like a small rectangle. You should love it!
I used the generic estradiol patches for a month, then tried Climara. Climara patches are SOOOO much thinner and adhere MUCH better. Climara patches are clear/see-through; the generic were like a thicker bandage!
I just found this out by luck but there are two manufacturers of the Estradiol patch which is the Climara generic. One is Mylan which is the big round pink patch. The other is Alvagen which is just like the Climara, thin and oval and clear.
Yes, I much prefer the Climara patch because of its small size and the fact that it's clear (like a nicotine patch). The Alvogen brand generic is identical to the brand name Climara. Good luck.
