This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

Climara is a patch used to replace the estrogen that the body stops producing around the time of the menopause.

Menopause ("change of life") is the cessation of menstruation, ie the time a woman has her last menstrual period; but the term menopause is used to define the years around that event when the body begins to produce less estrogen.

This dropping level of estrogen may cause symptoms in some women.

Climara can also be used in women who have had an operation to remove their ovaries as this causes instant menopause.

The symptoms of menopause are caused by a lack of estrogen. These symptoms include:

* hot flushes (night sweats)

* sleep disturbances

* vaginal dryness

* depression

* nervous irritability

* headache

* dizziness

* thinning of the bones (this can cause fractures)

Climara is an adhesive patch which delivers estradiol through the skin and into the blood stream.

The estradiol in Climara can replace the estrogen which the body is no longer making.

Climara releases estradiol in a continuous and controlled way just as your ovaries were doing before. Because the medicine does not have to pass through your stomach and liver, it allows you to take a much lower dose of estrogen than would be needed in a tablet.

The benefit of treatment with estrogen-containing preparations such as Climara has been proven scientifically. The use of estrogens alone and over a prolonged period can lead to excessive development of the lining of the womb and, in this connection, can increase the incidence of cancer of the womb. This risk can be avoided by the additional administration of a progestogen. The general result of this is regular shedding of the lining of the womb and, therefore, menstruation-like bleeding. If you have not had a hysterectomy (your uterus/womb removed) your doctor should give you a progestogen to take and you should discuss this with your doctor before using Climara.

Climara is not a contraceptive.
