Transdermal drug delivery avoids first-pass metabolism, which can result in greater bioavailability of the drug.
Transdermal patches are also more patient-friendly by reducing GI-associated side effects. Transdermal patches provide patients the medications they need in precise and steady doses, and patches can easily be applied by patients or caregivers at home. And if they need to stop treatment at any time, the patch is easily removed -- making it ideal for elderly populations or caregiver-intensive conditions.
