I could not reposition the patch AT ALL.

My experience was that if I botched the initial positioning - I ruined an entire patch. Thank God for Rx insurance - at that time.

I must admit to not much showering, at that time in my illness, but EMSAM was not effective for me anyway. Strange side effects that were non-tolerable.

Best wishes,
