Yes, it even say's this on the acual site, I swim almost every day. Make sure they are on good, sometimes I wait a day or if they are ready to be changed, i wait till im done swimming. I have never had on come off and the way they are made the medication will not wash away. So swim, but like I said I wait a day if I just put them on, or ill wait till im done swimming an I am back in the water-pool the next day. Hope this helped.
I just got out of my pool, which I have been swimming in for around 20 minutes, and my patch fell off in the pool. This was my first time submerging the patch entirely in the several months I have been using it. So, there is a chance that it could come off in the pool.
I'll provide some extra details if it helps...
I applied the patch 2 days ago, to my upper left arm. I use 20 mcg/hour patches for a duration of 1 week.
