What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Flector?

If you forget to take your dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember (remove the old patch and apply a new one). Just be sure to wait a full hour before the next dose. In any case, do not take a double dose.

Storage Methods

Flector should be stored at room temperature. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets. After removing a patch, fold it in half and carefully dispose of it (out of the reach of children or animals).

Available Strengths

Flector comes in one strength -- 1.3 percent. Each patch is 10 by 14 centimeters in size.

Is There a Generic Version of the Flector Patch?
