    Has anyone else had issues with patches falling off.  I've tried the pharmacy's private brand and Nicoderm.  They both fall off sometime throughout the day.  I've tried taping them on, the tape stays but the patch then lifts from my skin somewhat like a bandaid would do.

    Hi Che 5904,

    This is not uncommon...using medical tape can help, as it seems you are doing. Also, always make sure to read the label and follow the instructions on how to treat the area of skin before you apply and after you take off the patch.

    Hope this helps,

    This happens to me as well but I've solved it.
    I clean the area I am going to apply the patch to with alcohol and let it dry. I apply the patch and rub it for a minute to help it stick.
    Then I cover the whole thing with a band aid. I buy them at Dollarama. 5 in a pack got $1.25. The bandaid is a bit bigger than the patch and keeps it on all day no problems🙂
