How should I use Delestrogen 20mg/mL (Estradiol valerate) ?
Use Delestrogen 20mg/mL (Estradiol valerate) as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.
An extra patient leaflet is available with Delestrogen. Talk to your pharmacist if you have questions about this information.
Delestrogen is applied to the inside of the forearm, between the elbow and the wrist. Do not apply Delestrogen to any other area of the body besides the forearm. If you get Delestrogen on another area of your skin, wash that area of your skin with soap and water right away.
Apply Delestrogen to clean, intact skin only. Be sure the area is completely dry before applying Delestrogen.
Do not apply Delestrogen to skin that is irritated or broken. Do not apply it to your face, in or around the vagina, or to your breasts.
You will need to prime the pump before using it for the first time. To prime the pump, leave the cover on, hold the bottle in an upright position, and press the pump completely down 3 times. The pump is now ready for use.
Hold the applicator upright and rest the plastic cone flat against the skin of your forearm. Be sure there are no gaps between the cone and your skin. Press the pump firmly and fully 1 time. Do NOT massage or rub the medicine in.
If you are applying more than 1 spray, move the cone to an area of the skin next to but not touching the previous area. Then press the pump firmly and fully again.
Replace the protective cover over the pump after use.
Wash your hands with soap and water after using Delestrogen.
Allow the medicine to dry for at least 2 minutes before dressing.
Do not wash the application area for at least 1 hour after you apply Delestrogen.
Do not allow others to apply Delestrogen for you. Do not allow other people or pets to come into contact with the site where you applied Delestrogen. If someone else comes into contact with Delestrogen, have them wash the area with soap and water right away.
This pump contains enough medicine for 75 sprays (not counting the 3 sprays used to prime the pump). Throw away the pump after 75 sprays have been used, even if there is still medicine left in the pump. It may no longer give the correct amount of medicine with each dose.
Use Delestrogen at the same time each day.
If you miss a dose of Delestrogen, use it as soon as possible. If your next dose is less than 12 hours away, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.
Delestrogen 20mg/mL (Estradiol valerate) dosage
One Delestrogen (Delestrogen vaginal ring) is to be inserted as deeply as possible into the upper one-third of the vaginal vault. The ring is to remain in place continuously for three months, after which it is to be removed and, if appropriate, replaced by a new ring. The need to continue treatment should be assessed at 3 or 6 month intervals.
Should the ring be removed or fall out at any time during the 90-day treatment period, the ring should be rinsed in lukewarm water and re-inserted by the patient, or, if necessary, by a physician or nurse.
Retention of the ring for greater than 90 days does not represent overdosage but will result in progressively greater underdosage with the attendant risk of loss of efficacy and increasing risk of vaginal infections and/or erosions.
