Storage Information

Rotigotine should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep each patch in the original pouch until just before application. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. Dispose of a used patch by folding it in half and throwing it away out of the reach of children or pets; do not flush it down the toilet.
 

What If I Forget to Change a Patch?

If you forget to change your rotigotine patch, simply remove the old patch and replace it with a new one as soon as possible. Return to your normal schedule the next day. Do not double the dose of rotigotine.
