      Hey! I have a 5 year old son who was just put on medication for the first time a month ago. The doctor prescribed Clonidine Patch.. It seems to be working we just started the 5th patch that we put on his back. My first question is does anyone have a magic way of easily removing the patch without having to go to war? My second question is that I am noticing a rash across his chest and was wondering if it is a side affect from the medicine.. I have a call into the doctor but I am waiting for a call back..

      Hello,
      Your son may be allergic to adhesive components in the patch. Consider switching to tablets. They are small enough for a young child to swallow. To remove the patch, try wetting it first with water or rubbing alcohol to loosen the adhesive.
      I hope this helps !
