Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.
The patches provide a natural oestrogen, known as estradiol, via the skin and aim to replace natural hormone that is lost during menopause. The loss of oestrogen is the main reason that women experience symptoms and this treatment aims to correct this imbalance.
Elleste Solo MX just contains natural oestrogen, meaning that women who haven't had a hysterectomy should use an alternative treatment such as Elleste Duet or be prescribed clinical oestrogen additionally.
Elleste Solo MX is usually recommended to women who require relief from night sweats, vaginal itching, vaginal dryness and hot flushes. It can also be used in preventing osteoporosis. It may not be recommended as an HRT treatment for you if you have a history of oestrogen-dependent cancer, circulatory problems, liver disease or you have or have had breast cancer. To find out more about the symptoms of menopause and how you can relieve these, visit our menopause information page.
Elleste Solo MX packs contain just one type of patch that is either available in a 40mcg or 80mcg dose. This means that the treatment releases 40mcg or 80mcg via the skin into the body every 24 hours. The patch should be applied to an area of skin that is clean and dry and located below the waist. The patch should be changed twice a week and is worn in 28 day cycles, without any breaks between patches.
HRT treatments, just like any prescription treatment, have a risk of side effects, however when you have been prescribed the right treatment by your doctor and you are going for regular check-ups these shouldn't be anything to worry about. The common side effects such as nausea, indigestion, headaches, acne, fluid retention, leg cramps and irritation in the area where the patch is applied, are mostly a sign that the body is adjusting to the treatment, but you should tell your doctor if any of the side effects that you are experiencing are causing you significant discomfort.
These patches are available to order from 121doc. We, however, only provide repeat prescriptions for these types of treatments, which is why you should order a medication that you have already been prescribed by your doctor. The ordering process includes a consultation process and any information you provide on this consultation form will be checked by our doctor to make sure that you can use this medication safely. If your consultation is approved your order will be shipped directly to you from our pharmacy for next day delivery.
