My sons nuerologist wanted us to try the patch instead of using the robinal.I know Robinal can make his secretions thicker.Do any of you know anything about the patch?Does it also make secretions thick ?We Just started the patch yesterday and i am not seeing a change yet.I am continuing with saline nebs.

some people swear the patch is better than robinul, others say it worse. i personally have not used the patch, my son did have robinul for a bit when was a baby, it made him plug to much, so he wasn't on it for long. i know a few people in the uk have used the patch, it was hit or miss.good luck

Our experience with Scapolamine patches is that they work great; however they can be tough on the skin. Braden can't use them because they cause blisters.
