If anyone else has been struggling to keep their Rotigitone medication patch on in the heat despite storing them in the fridge then a tegaderm dressing over the top of it will keep it on. Just check that a 6 x 7cm one will cover your patch.

I can’t change it, I so wish I didn’t have it. But I do and therefore I have a choice. Do nothing or live as best as I can everyday and take every opportunity to educate about it, changing attitudes along the way. It just helps one person then it’s been worth it .
