Leave the patch in place and wear it for 3 to 4 days. You should change the patch twice per week. Each time you apply a new patch, choose a different skin area on your stomach, hip or buttock. Do not apply a patch to the same skin twice within one week.
Try to change your Oxytrol patch on the same two days each week (such as every Sunday and Thursday). There is a calendar printed on the package of this medication to help you establish a steady patch-changing schedule.
If the patch falls off, try sticking it back on. If it does not stay on, replace it with a new one and wear it until your next regular patch-changing day. Do not change your schedule, even if you apply a new patch to replace one that has fallen off.
After removing a patch, fold it in half so it sticks together and throw it away in a place where children or pets cannot get to it.
