What If I Overdose on Scopolamine Patch?

If you happen to overdose on this medication, seek immediate medical attention.

Storage Information

The patches should be stored at room temperature. Dispose of a used patch by folding it in half and throwing it away, out of the reach of children or pets.
 

What If I Forget to Change a Patch?

If you forget to change your scopolamine patch, simply remove the old patch and replace it with a new one as soon as possible. Return to your normal schedule the next day. Do not double the dose.
 
It is very important to remember to take off the old patch when applying a new one. An old patch will still release some medication, and forgetting to remove it may lead to an overdose.
