happens if my patch falls off?
If, at any time, your patch falls off or becomes unstuck,
remove it and put on a new one. Remove this new patch at your regular
time to keep to your step-down course schedule. Whenever you apply
a new patch, be sure to press it firmly onto your skin with the
palm of your hand and count slowly for about 10 seconds. Pay special
attention so that the patch sticks well around the edges. This will
prevent moisture and dirt from getting under the patch.
