HOW TO USE the SECUADO® (asenapine) transdermal system

This video shows you how to apply SECUADO®

It’s important to apply the SECUADO® patch as instructed by your healthcare provider in order to receive your medicine. After talking to your doctor, watch this video and read the Instructions for Use leaflet that comes with your SECUADO® prescription before you start using SECUADO® and every time you get a refill, as there may be new information. This does not replace talking to your doctor about your medical condition or treatment.

How to help your patch stick

The SECUADO® patch has been designed to stick to your skin for a full 24 hours. Be sure to follow the full instructions for use, and:

  • Choose an application site that is clean, dry, and intact
  • Do not apply the patch on skin that has cuts, scrapes, burns, rashes, redness, or other skin problems
  • Select an application site that is hairless or nearly hairless
  • If there is a lot of hair, use scissors to clip the hair as close to the skin as possible; do not shave the application site
  • Do not apply the patch on skin that has oils, lotions, or powders on it
  • Do not apply the patch to areas of your skin where you wear tight clothing, such as waistbands, bras, or tank top straps
  • Avoid bathing or swimming while wearing the patch, but you may take a shower
