What if I forget to replace an Exelon patch?

The Exelon patch is designed to be replaced once a day. If you forget to apply a new patch at the usual time, you can do so right away. If you miss a day, simply replace the old patch as usual and resume the normal schedule. Never have two Exelon patches on the skin at once. Try to replace the patch at the same time every day to avoid missed doses.
