Roundtable discussion on the use of transdermal medication: clinical characteristics and skin reactions

  • M. A. Weber
  • C. J. Mathias


The papers in this symposium have provided interesting data on the pharmacokinetics of transdermally administered Clonidine and have shown its clinical effectiveness in patients with mild to moderate hypertension. I think we should consider whether this form of treatment causes a skin reaction, how often this occurs, how it can be prevented, and what future research should be contemplated.
