I have a test that requires I have it off. & I don't wanna lose one to that. My scheduled day to change it is sun & my test is Mon. So can I put it on & get sundays dose & take it off late that night for test on Mon?
Unfortunately no. In order not to lose that patch you should just put it on Monday after your test. Once you've unsealed the patch, applied it, then take it off for any length of time, the patch will lose it's effectiveness due to the prolonged exposure to air and the change in temperature. Plus it will no longer stick. I also had this situation come up at one point when I used the patch so I'm actually speaking from experience. It would be best to leave the current patch on until just before your test and change to the new patch when your test has been completed.
