My doctor wants to get me off this medication. He instructed me to cut the patch in half and go from there for a while ( one month). Is this common practice? Is it safe?
Im assuming you take this for high blood preassure? Ya I think it is a bit unusual to cut patches of any kind in half, but I dont think you have to be concerned that it will do you any harm, and your Dr. is right in weaning you off of it and not just discontinueing it all at once. Good Luck.
