    • Apply Transderm-Scop (scopolamine) to a clean, dry, hairless area of the skin behind the ear. Press down for 30 seconds to make sure the patch stays firmly.
    • After handling the patch, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water to avoid accidental contact with your eyes.
    • If the patch comes off, throw it away and use a new patch.
    • You can prevent skin irritation by alternating ears and washing the area of your ear that you had placed the patch on.
    • If you're using this before surgery, place it the day before, then leave it on until the day after your surgery.
