Just that really-i have a mirena which suits me really well (no periods for the last 12 years etc), Dr originally had me on a .40mcg patch but is doubling it from this week as I still feel hot, tired, can't concentrate etc. Is the new dose still low? I'm finding it hard to compare with other get available as they are all calculated differently...

No- that is a high patch. If you look at the website Menopause Matters /Treatments/ HRT/ menu you will see ALL HRT preps.

37mcgs is low, 50 medium, 75 and 100 are high.

Thank you Polly helpful as always , never sure how to compare these things. Hopefully the higher dose will stop me feeling hot and forgetful, fingers crossed!

I made a bit of a mistake with this- that formula doesn't seem to be listed on Menopause Matters site. However, a quick google shows what's in it and the difference between the 40mcgs. The 40mcgs is 1.5mgs daily and the 80 is 2.5 mgs daily.

Sorry- 1.25mgs and 2.5mgs.
