    How should I take Exelon Patch?

    Use Exelon Patch as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

    • An extra patient leaflet is available with Exelon Patch. Talk to your pharmacist if you have questions about this information.
    • Do not cut or tear the patch. Do not apply a patch if the pouch seal is broken or if the patch has been damaged.
    • Apply the patch to the upper or lower back, upper arm, or chest. Use a new application site with each new patch. Do not use the same site within 14 days.
    • Apply to dry, intact skin. Do not apply to an area of skin that is hairy, oily, irritated, broken, scarred, or calloused. Do not apply to an area where cream, lotion, or powder has recently been applied. Do not place the patch under tight clothing.
    • Do not remove the patch from the sealed pouch until you are ready to apply it.
    • To apply the patch, remove the protective liner from 1 side of the patch. Place the sticky side of the patch to the application site, then remove the second side of the protective liner. Press the patch down firmly for 30 seconds until the edges stick well. If you have questions about how to apply the patch, check with your doctor or pharmacist.
    • After 24 hours, remove the used patch. Do not touch the sticky side. Fold the patch in half with the sticky sides together. Discard patch out of the reach of children and away from pets.
    • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after applying or removing a patch. Do not touch your eyes before you have washed your hands. If contact with the eyes happens on accident or if your eyes become red after you have held the patch, rinse right away with water. Call your doctor if symptoms do not go away.
    • You may wear the patch while bathing, swimming, or showering. Make sure the patch does not come loose during these activities.

    • Wear only 1 patch at a time. Be sure that you remove your old patch before you apply a new one. Wearing more than 1 patch at a time can lead to severe and sometimes deadly overdose. Change the patch at about the same time each day.
    • Do not use bandages or tape to hold down loose patches. Do not reapply patches that have fallen off.
    • Continue to use Exelon Patch even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.
