Methylphenidate

Drug Info for methylphenidate

Methylphenidate transdermal patches are used as part of a treatment program to control symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD; more difficulty focusing, controlling actions, and remaining still or quiet than other people who are the same age). Methylphenidate is in a class of medications called central nervous system stimulants. It works by changing the amounts of certain natural substances in the brain.

  • Absorbed through the skin

Transdermal routeYour doctor will tell you how many patches to use, where to apply them, and how often to apply them. Do not use more patches or apply them more often than your doctor tells you to.

This medicine should come with a Medication Guide. Ask your pharmacist for a copy if you do not have one.

The patch is usually placed on your hip. When you put on a new patch, do not put it on the same place you wore the last one.

Open the medicine pouch carefully. Do not cut or tear the patch itself. Do not use a patch that is cut or torn.

Do not touch the sticky side, because you will get medicine on your skin.

Transdermal routeWash your hands with soap and water before and after applying a patch.

Transdermal routeDo not put the patch over burns, cuts, or irritated skin. Make sure the skin area is clean, dry, cool, and free of powder, oil, or lotion before you apply the patch. Press down on the patch for 30 seconds to make sure it sticks.

If a patch comes off, put on a new one in a different spot on the same hip. Remove the new patch at the same time that you would have removed the old one.

Never wear 2 patches at the same time.

Do not wear patches for longer than 9 hours a day total. If you put on a new patch because one fell off, the total time for both patches should still be less than 9 hours. Use the chart that comes with the patient instructions to help you keep track of how long to wear the patch. Take the patch off by slowly peeling it back. Use mineral oil or petroleum jelly if needed to make the patch less sticky.

The patch might come off if you go swimming or take a bath or shower.

Missed dose: If you forget to apply the patch at the usual time, you may apply it later in the day. Remove it at the time you normally would, so you do not have side effects later than usual (including trouble sleeping that night).

Transdermal routeStore the patches at room temperature in a closed container, away from heat, moisture, and direct light. Do not store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Ask your pharmacist about the best way to dispose of used or leftover patches. Fold used or leftover patches in half with the sticky sides together. There is still enough medicine in a used patch to make a child or pet sick, so be sure they cannot come in contact with the patches. Wash your hands with soap and water.

When you stop treatment or the patches expire, take each patch out of its pouch, and fold it in half. Drop off any unused patches at a drug take-back location right away. If you do not have a drug take-back location near you, flush folded patches down the toilet. Check your local drug store and clinics for take-back locations. You can also check the DEA web site for locations.
