It is best to take it off & put a new one on after your shower. Because once you take a shower the water makes the adhisive become loosened & will fall off.
Plus the only adhesive left will be in the center so you will not get the full dosage of medicine.
I try to change the patch after showers daily.
Take care, Kathy
