Evamist TD Uses
This medication is a female hormone (estrogen). It is absorbed through the skin and enters into the bloodstream. It is used by women to help reduce a certain symptom of menopause (hot flashes). Symptoms of menopause are caused by the body making less estrogen. If you are using estrogens to treat only vaginal symptoms of menopause (such as vaginal dryness/burning/itching), products applied directly inside the vagina should be considered before medications that are taken by mouth, absorbed through the skin, or injected.
How To Use Evamist TD
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using this medication and each time you get a refill. Learn how to use the spray correctly. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Follow the instructions for priming the spray if you are using it for the first time.
Keep the spray upright when using. Spray this medication on clean, dry skin of the inside area of your forearm (between the elbow and the wrist) as directed by your doctor, usually once daily in the morning. If your dose is for more than 1 spray, do not use more than 1 spray on the same area of the skin. The application sites should be next to each other but not overlapping. Avoid applying this medication to broken, irritated skin. Do not apply this medication to other areas of the body, including the breast, face, or in or around the vagina.
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or use this medication more often than prescribed.
Replace the cap on the spray after each use. After applying this medication, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Wait at least 2 minutes for the application site to dry completely before dressing. Do not rub the medication into the skin. Cover the application site with clothing (such as a long-sleeve shirt) to prevent others from touching the application area and being exposed to the drug. If someone accidentally touches the application site, have them wash the area of contact on their body with soap and water as soon as possible. Also, keep pets from coming into contact with the application site.
To get the best effect, wait at least 1 hour before washing the application site to allow the drug to be absorbed through the skin.
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day.
Avoid getting this medication in the eyes. If this medication gets in the eyes, rinse them right away with warm water. Tell your doctor if you get any eye irritation.
This medication is flammable until dry. Let the medication dry before smoking or going near an open flame.
Keep track of the number of sprays you use. Discard the container after you have used the labeled number of sprays on the product package, even if there is medication left in the container.
