Wearing neupro patch

I've had severe RLS for about 16 years and the Neupro patch is the first med. that has worked with no side effects for me. My only problem is keeping it on. I work at a job where I perspire quite a bit and the patch often falls off. Does anybody else have a problem with this. I've only been using the patch for a month and I've tried putting a bandaid over it, but that doesn't always work either.

Re: Wearing neupro patch

I've had the problem with the Neuro Patch does not stay on. I try taping the edges but then only the edges that are taped stick and the patch just hangs there. If I tape all edges the center of the patch still doesn't adhere. Have you had any luck getting the patch to adhere? Thanks!

Can you put patch where you don't sweat as bad?

I spoke to a pharmacist who recommended thoroughly cleaning the skin with rubbing alcohol before applying the patch. This has made a huge difference. The patch adheres much better now.
