I take/apply 75 mg patch every 48 hrs. This morning I put on new patch (removed) the old one. I thought today was Saturday and applied a new patch. I need to know if that is ok
You will be ok. The patch only releases x amount of your desired dose.
You will run short however.
I agree with the diary. It seems to be a simple thing to remember but the med effect, staying home, etc lends itself to getting mixed up to what day of the week it is.
You may want to alert your doctor so there is no problem when it comes time to refill early.
