Oestradiol patches: Supply issue resolved

The supplier has advised that Estradot transdermal 75 mcg patches are available for supply now.

In February 2021, we advised that the Estradot brand 75 mcg patches were out of stock. We listed an alternative product from 1 March 2021. 

The alternative was Estradiol TDP Mylan patches (75 mcg per day). The pharmacode is 2605317.

This product was not Medsafe approved. It had to be supplied in line with s 29 of the Medicines Act.
