Important Application and Removal Instructions

Each Transderm Scōp transdermal system is formulated to deliver in vivo approximately 1 mg of scopolamine over 3 days.
Only wear one transdermal system at any time.
Do not cut the transdermal system.
Apply the transdermal system to the skin in the postauricular area (hairless area behind one ear).
After the transdermal system is applied on the dry skin behind the ear, wash hands thoroughly with soap and water and dry hands [see Warnings and Precautions (5.6)].
