Brief Answer:
Better to avoid cutting

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The fact remains that the patches have been made to give a certain dose of medicine.
If you cut them, the dose will become unreliable.
so I would suggest that you avoid cutting the patch.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal. .
