Catapres TTS Patch Overview
Catapres TTS Patch is used alone or with other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Clonidine belongs to a class of drugs (central alpha agonists) that act in the brain to lower blood pressure. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.
How to Use Catapres TTS Patch
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking clonidine and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Peel off the backing from the patch and apply the patch to a clean, dry, and hairless area of the skin on the upper outer arm or upper chest. Press the patch firmly in place for about 10 seconds to make sure it stays on. Do not apply the patch on oily, broken, or irritated skin. Avoid applying the patch to areas of the skin where it might be easily rubbed off (such as on skin folds). Use Catapres TTS Patch as directed by your doctor. The patch is usually worn for 1 week and then replaced. Follow the dosing schedule carefully. Wash your hands after handling the patch. The Dosage of Catapres TTS Patch is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. When replacing your patch, make sure to apply the new patch to a different area. Fold the old patch in half with the sticky side together and throw away in the trash away from children and pets. Do not flush the patch down the toilet. If the patch starts to loosen from the skin, you may apply the adhesive cover over the patch so that it does not fall off during the 1-week period. The "adhesive cover" does not contain any medication. If the patch falls off or if you have mild redness/itching/irritation around the application site, discard the patch as directed and apply a new patch to a different area. Use Catapres TTS Patch regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, change the patch on the same day each week. It may help to mark your calendar with a reminder. It is important to continue using Catapres TTS Patch even if you feel well. Most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick. Do not stop using Catapres TTS Patch without consulting your doctor. You may experience symptoms such as nervousness, agitation, shaking, and headache. A rapid rise in blood pressure may also occur if the drug is suddenly stopped. The risk is greater if you have used Catapres TTS Patch for a long time or in high doses, or if you are also taking a beta blocker (such as atenolol). There have also been rare reports of severe, possibly fatal reactions (such as stroke) from stopping Catapres TTS Patch too quickly. Therefore, it is important that you do not run out of clonidine patches or miss any doses. To prevent any reactions while you are stopping treatment with Catapres TTS Patch, your doctor may reduce your dose gradually. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details. Report any new or worsening symptoms right away. When used for a long time, Catapres TTS Patch may not work as well and may require different dosing or an additional medication. Talk with your doctor if Catapres TTS Patch stops working well (such as your blood pressure readings remain high or increase).
