What if my Estraderm patch falls off?

If you apply the Estraderm skin patch properly, there is very little chance that it will fall off or become loose. However, if that happens, simply press the patch back into place. Avoid touching the sticky side of the patch. If you aren't able to replace it, fold the patch in half so that it sticks to itself and throw it away. Replace the patch with a fresh one and keep the new patch on for the remainder of your dosing schedule.
