    Severe (skin eruptions)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication was withdrawn by the manufacturer...if it hadn't been I would have had to stop anyway...as I delveloped a severe skin reaction to the patch. If the medication had been on a paper or silk binder, instead of the silicone...I don't think this would have been a problem.
