Transdermal Patches

The Transdermal patch is a medicated adhesive patch put on the skin to continuously give specific doses of medication from the skin through the blood into the body to provide relief from pain.

Conventional methods of medication for pain have been oral, intravenous, topical and intramuscular. The Transdermal patch drug delivery provides a controlled release of the medication into the bloodstream of the patient, usually through either a porous membrane covering a reservoir of medication or through body heat by melting thin layers of medication embedded in the adhesive. This allows the patient to experience a simple treatment for pain.
