The Exelon Patch should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep the patch and all other medications out of the reach of children. Do not remove a patch from its pouch until just before use. Dispose of a used patch by folding it in half, returning it to the original pouch, and throwing it away, out of reach of children or pets (do not flush it down the toilet).
If you forget to change your Exelon Patch, simply remove the old patch and replace it with a new one as soon as possible. Return to your normal patch-changing schedule and time the next day. Do not apply double the prescribed amount.
