This medicine has been a life saver. I take the newer matrix patch made affordable by Johnson and Johnson Patient Assistance Program. I've been on it for one year and am now taking 100mcg/hour patch changing every 48hrs. It does require 3M's Tegaderm dressing to keep in place but sometimes will still come off. But overall my pain is greatly reduced. As a word of caution DO NOT SUDDEN ... Show Full Comment

You do not have to be a Co ... Show Full Comment

I have chronic pain stemming from a car accident and several mountain bike accidents prior. I was an athlete and very healthy until 1999 when I was 33. After having ... Show Full Comment
