BorgCo labs have developed a time-release medication patch for the somnolent.

The patches are marked according to their duration, typically 8 hours. 8 hours before the user wants to arise, they flex the patch to break an enclosed vial, then remove the protective sheet and apply to their skin.

At the expiry of the set time, the patch releases a cocktail of chemicals including caffeine, amphetamine & epinephrin, which rapidly diffuse through the user's skin, ensuring that very shortly they are wide awake.

       This has been posted, but in pill form. I know because I posted it, and it was pointed out to me that I wasn't the first to do so.

       Yes, we know about the pill idea - the innovation here is the method of administration.
