> I'm only on my 5th day of Emsam, but the first 4 days I put the patch on my breastbone area and the area breastbone area. The patches stuck great. Yesterday I put the patch on the outside part of my arm slightly down from my shoulder and it didn't come off, but it didn't stick as well there so I'm back to the chest area.
> No matter where I put it though, I end up with a red rash that lasts 2 days. It stings to remove the patch too, that's for sure, but I'm not giving it up. I've actually started using my treadmill again which is big for me...

I tried your idea of putting it on the breastbone and it is sticking just fine there. I take it off during a hot shower and kind of let the water push it off while I help just a little with the peeling. Maybe that would help your irritation.
