After 4 weeks, if your loved one is tolerating the medication, ask the doctor if introducing the recommended effective dose of 9.5 mg/24 hours is right for him or her.

About the Recommended Effective Dose

Elizabeth Galik, Nurse Practitioner, explains the benefits of moving from the Exelon Patch 4.6 mg/24 hours to the Exelon Patch 9.5 mg/24 hours for appropriate patients. People below 50 kg (110lbs) or with liver or kidney conditions, should consult their HCP as an increase to Exelon Patch 9.5 mg/24 hours may not be appropriate.

Mistakes in using EXELON PATCH have resulted in serious side effects; some cases have required hospitalization, and rarely, led to death. Most mistakes have involved not removing the old patch when putting on a new one and the use of multiple patches at one time. Only one EXELON PATCH should be worn at a time. If you accidentally apply more than one EXELON PATCH, remove all of them and inform the doctor immediately.

EXELON PATCH can cause gastrointestinal adverse reactions, including significant nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, and weight loss. Dehydration may result from prolonged vomiting or diarrhea and can be associated with serious outcomes. The incidence and severity of these reactions are dose related. For this reason, treatment should be initiated with EXELON PATCH at a dose of 4.6 mg/24 hours and titrated to a dose of 9.5 mg/24 hours, if appropriate. If you have not taken EXELON PATCH for more than 3 days, do not start taking it again until you have talked to a doctor.

The most common side effects with EXELON PATCH 9.5 mg/24 hours were nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Weight should be checked while the person is using EXELON PATCH. Weight loss/loss of appetite may occur. People below 50 kg (110 lbs) may experience more side effects and may have to stop using EXELON PATCH due to these side effects.
