... What type of test? If its a simple (cheap) in office dip stick test, those are notorious for being inaccurate, as well as sometimes being mis-read (the test doesn't show the meds in your urine, as much as the metabolites from the meds). Plus sometimes other meds and even foods can mess with the results. If it was an in office test, ask for them to send the sample out to a... (15 replies)

... I use 3M Nexcare brand Tegaderm dressings/covers on my patches. They are breathable and stick extremely well (occasionally an edge will lift up and I just put a small piece of waterproof first aid tape to hold that down and keep it from peeling further).
