IMPORTANT NOTE: The following information is provided only as general information related to the usage of transdermal therapeutic systems and is not intended to be a substitute for the instructions/directions for use provided with any specific transdermal patch product and/or direction or advice provided by a medical care provider.

  • A transdermal therapeutic system, or transdermal patch, will generally include instructions/ directions for use, handling, placement and process for application. It is important to read the instructions before using a transdermal patch. Any questions should be directed to a doctor or pharmacist.

  • The placement of a transdermal patch will depend on the specific patch and the reason(s) for its use. For example, patches may be applied to the back, chest or upper arm.
  • Washing of hands and other good standards of hygiene are important before applying a patch.
  • The handling of transdermal patch will depend on the specific patch. Generally, removal of the packaging and a protective film will occur before application.
  • Depending on the specific patch and direction provided by a medical care provider, a patch may need to be applied to a different area of skin each time or there may need to be a waiting period before a patch can be reapplied to the same area of the skin.
  • The appropriate usage of a transdermal patch will depend on the specific patch. Generally, only one patch is used at a time and an old patch is removed before applying a new one, and patches are not intended to be cut. A medical care provider should be consulted regarding the appropriate usage of a patch.
  • The application of a transdermal patch will depend on the specific patch. For example, some patches will need to be pressed down firmly onto the skin for about 30 sections to properly adhere.
  • Transdermal patches are generally durable. Depending on the specific patch and direction provided by a medical care provider, it is possible that a patch may not have to be removed before bathing.
  • Exposure to sunlight, the use of heating pads, hot water bottles, saunas, sunbeds or other sources of heat may have an effect on a patch and how it works. For example, in some cases, a patch that is exposed to heat may accelerate the rate at which a drug is released from a patch and could lead to an overdose.
