I have tried many of the places suggested on the instructions. I have not tried the stomach or upper back (I am afraid I couldn't reach well enough on my upper back to get a good stick, but then again I have had major injuries to both shoulders). My preferred places are bilateral upper chest followed by bilateral upper arm. At first I thought I had greater absorbtion of chest vs. upper thigh, though now I think it is pretty much the same everywhere. I would just try it multiple places and go with where it sticks. The lower back and thigh seem to be more in the way of my clothing and I am not letting those expensive patches fall off. Do whatever works for you. I started following Rob's suggestion and slap it once after putting it on. Maybe it is like a good luck charm...

> I've pretty much kept the patch on my upper back, chest and arms. I like to keep it high as I like to take long hot baths at night and they say you're suppost to avoid long periods of heat exposure so by keeping it high it doesn't soak in the hot water (for long periods).
> On a couple of occations I placed it on my stomach, but never my legs. There are so many options to place it I really don't pay much attention to it and can't say that I've noticed much difference. The chart seems to suggest that it's fine either upper or lower body (outer thighs), but I suspect it doesn't make much difference. I just slap it on where ever I feel like it.
> Since I've had such a positive response I will say I like the idea of having on my upper body as I want as much of the drug to get to my brain as possible, but that's just my little mental thing and probably doesn't matter at all. Once I put it on I give it a few good slaps to make sure it sticks well as I want the selegiline to really soak in.
> I wish you the best of luck with it and I hope this info helps. Rob
