Where should I keep my medicine?

Keep out of the reach of children.

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F). Keep the patch in its pouch until time of use. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.

Dispose of used patches properly. Since a used patch may still contain active hormones, fold the patch in half so that it sticks to itself prior to disposal. Throw away in a place where children or pets cannot reach.

Remember, keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children, never share your medicines with others, and use this medication only for the indication prescribed.
