Menopause in a sachet

Published: Wednesday 31 May 1995

Ciba-Geigy is marketing a hormone sachet, for women, to cope with menopause, an indication of diminishing oestrogen and ovarian functions. The symptoms are hot flushes and perspiration to osteoporosis.

Sealed in air tight sachets - the Estraderm TTS (transclermal thera- peutic system) - the patch is applied to skin below the waist with a certain amount of skill. Exposure to air renders the patch ineffective.
