Don't do that, this is powerful medication and it can leak out and cause very severe problems. Ask for a lower dose patch, or take it off briefly ( if you are running low on them, and afraid you will run out) and restick it using paper tape. A nurse had to cut some used ones up and got the gel on her finger and severely reacted. Do not cut this in half.
