What is Elleste Solo MX?

Elleste Solo MX patches contain the active ingredient estradiol, which is a naturally occurring form of the main female sex hormone, oestrogen. Women gradually produce less and less oestrogen in the period up to the menopause. The declining levels of oestrogen can cause distressing symptoms. Elleste Solo MX supplements hormone deficiency, which in turn helps reduce menopausal symptoms. This is known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

What is it used for?

Elleste Solo MX relieves symptoms of menopause caused by declining levels of oestrogen, including:

  • Hot flushes;
  • Irregular and/or heavy periods;
  • Night sweats;
  • Sleep disorders;
  • Dryness of mucous membranes (eyes, vagina);
  • Mood swings.

Elleste Solo MX is also prescribed to prevent osteoporosis after menopause and to treat headaches and migraines triggered by menstruation.

How to use Elleste Solo MX

The active ingredient in Elleste Solo MX patches is absorbed through the skin. The patch should be applied to clean, dry skin and replaced several times a week. Each fresh patch should be applied to a slightly different area (hip, buttocks, belly) to avoid irritating the skin. Patches should NOT be applied on or near the breasts. Elleste Solo MX is most suitable for women who have had a hysterectomy. Women who have not had a hysterectomy should also be prescribed a progestogen medicine to take with this medicine to protect the womb lining. If this medicine is used to treat menstrual-induced headaches, the patches should only be used in the days surrounding menstruation. See the package leaflet for more information on how to use the patches.

Dosage

Unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, the usual dose is:

  • One patch at a time, replaced with a fresh patch every three to four days.

Be sure to read the package leaflet before you start using this medicine.
