Storage Methods

Daytrana should be stored at room temperature away from moisture or heat. Each Daytrana patch should be kept in its pouch until just before use. The patches come in a tray; once you have opened a tray, you should use up the patches within two months (do not use patches from a tray that has been open for more than two months).
Keep Daytrana and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not apply your patch as scheduled, apply the patch as soon as you remember (but still remove the patch at your usual time). If you do not remember until it is almost your usual patch removal time, skip your Daytrana patch that day. Do not use a double dose of Daytrana.


The patches are available in four strengths:
  • Daytrana 10 mg patches
  • Daytrana 15 mg patches
  • Daytrana 20 mg patches
  • Daytrana 30 mg patches.
