General Information on Estraderm
Estraderm is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) drug which contains estradiol as its main constituent. It is available in the form of a skin patch that is to be changed twice a week. Estraderm is used to provide temporary relief to women going through menopause.
Estraderm can also prevent the thinning of bones in women. Although HRT is very effective, it should not be used in the long term. It should not be used to treat heart disorders or dementia.
You cannot buy Estraderm for the role of a contraceptive. As such, the drug must not be used for anything other than the intended purpose.
Side effects of Estraderm
The most common side effects of Estraderm include nausea, headache, breast tenderness, and change in weight. These might be common symptoms for many diseases, but if they persist for a long time, you should consult a doctor.
Some people have experienced severe mood changes, breast lumps, vaginal bleeding, itching or burning around the vagina, dark colored urine, swelling, and excessive thirst. These are the severe side effects of Estraderm, and you must consult your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms.
Estraderm can pose a threat to your life on rare occasions. When it gets concentrated in a single area, it can cause blood clots that block the entry of blood in certain organs. If you experience side effects such as pain in one side of the body, sudden headache, blurred vision, difficulty speaking, sudden confusion, sudden loss of weight, swelling or tenderness in the legs, dizziness, or cough, you should seek medical help immediately.
Dosage of Estraderm
Certain drugs can interact with Estraderm and increase the risk of side effects. Make a complete list of all the medications you are currently using and discuss that with your doctor. Your doctor will inform you if anything that can pose a danger to your health is in that list, after which he/she will determine if Estraderm is safe for you. Never stop or start taking any medication without the approval of your doctor.
The dosage of Estraderm will depend on how you respond to the drug. For many people, it is recommended that they take the lowest dose for the shortest period of time. Generally, most women use a 0.05 mg skin patch twice a week
If you have undergone a hysterectomy, you can take the medication without breaks. However, if you have not undergone a hysterectomy, you should take the patch for three weeks and then observe a 7 day break before you continue using the patch again.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
