Can I apply my Daytrana patch on my upper arm instead of my hip?

    The Daytrana patch must be applied to your hip, just as you were instructed by your doctor. If you apply it to another part of your body (such as your upper arm), the medicine in the patch may be absorbed differently. The safety and effectiveness of applying the patch to other parts of the body has not been tested in clinical studies.
