Children come in different sizes.
DAYTRANA does, too.

Sizes depicted are relative; dimensions appear below dosage strengths.

Sizes depicted are relative; dimensions appear below dosage strengths.

The once-a-day DAYTRANA patch comes in four sizes.

Each size delivers a different dosage strength designed to help manage the symptoms of ADHD in children ages 6-17. The suggested starting dose is 10 mg. The dosage may need to be gradually increased based on the patient's response.

Together, you and your doctor will find the right dose for your child. The patch provides up to 10 hours of efficacy when worn for up to 9 hours—the maximum recommended wear time.

NOTE: Because the medicine in the DAYTRANA patch does not have to be processed through the stomach, dosage strengths may be different from oral ADHD medications.

How to Apply and Remove DAYTRANA

When applied correctly, the DAYTRANA patch should stay in place for the full duration of treatment. Exposure to water during bathing, swimming, or showering may affect how well the patch sticks, so be sure to follow the 6 steps below to ensure you apply the patch properly.

1

Carefully cut open the pouch containing the patch, and make sure it is not damaged. The patch should separate easily from the protective liner. Do not use patches that have been cut or damaged in any way. Throw away the patch if the protective liner is hard to remove.

2

Hold the patch with the protective liner facing you—the word "DAYTRANA" will appear backwards because you are looking at the bottom of the patch.

3

Gently bend the patch along the faint line, and slowly peel half the liner to expose the sticky surface underneath. Try to avoid touching the sticky part with your fingers. If you do touch it, wash your hands immediately after application.

4

Place the sticky side of the patch firmly on the hip and smooth it down. Make sure the skin is clean, dry, and cool without any powder, lotion, or oil. Alternate the hip on which the patch is worn each day to reduce potential irritation.

5

Gently fold back the other half and slowly peel off the remaining protective liner.

6

Press the entire patch firmly into place and hold for about 30 seconds. This ensures adhesion of the patch to the skin. Go over the edges with your fingers to make sure that it's secure.

NOTE: Wash your hands immediately after applying the patch. Patches should not be reapplied with bandages, tape, or other household adhesives. Also, do not use hair dryers, heating pads, electric blankets, or other heat sources directly on the patch. If you have to replace a patch that has fallen off, the total wear time for the first and second patch should not be more than a total of 9 hours in 1 day. Do not reapply the same patch that fell off.

The DAYTRANA patch can be easily removed in 3 steps.

1

Peel the patch off slowly, then fold the used patch in half so that it sticks to itself.

2

Flush the used patch down the toilet or, if you have a septic tank, dispose of it in a lidded trash receptacle right away.

3

Remove any adhesive residue from the skin by gently rubbing the area with oil or lotion.

NOTE: Any unneeded or expired DAYTRANA patches should be disposed of properly. Remove patches from their protective pouches, peel off the liners, and fold the sticky sides together. Then flush the patches down the toilet or throw away in a lidded trash receptacle right away. Wash your hands after you handle the patch. Proper disposal is important since unneeded or expired patches still contain medication that could be harmful to small children or pets if touched or consumed.
