I've taken this Rx 3 years after back surgery. It does fall off easily so I cover with a waterproof bandaid. I still have some pain but realize I could not function or survive without it. I feel better and have fewer side effects than from my prior oral narcotics, although there was a period of adjustment. My doctor is concerned about addiction issues and will not increase my current dosage.

Sometimes the patch does not stay on very well which means you are not getting the full effect or it seems to empty quicker than the 3 days. After 4 months I started to get rashes from the adhesive which at first were easily treated wi ... Show Full Comment
