Very hard to peel patch off of backing. I have severe spinal stenosis,with 3 discs fused and two other spine surgeries. It pretty much helps the pain but I still have to supplement with 2 percecets a day when pain returns.Usually works most of day. Falls off alot,need to take care of this. I tape it with medical tape now

Herniated discs in back and neck. I have the low dose 12. It doesn't do much by its self,have to take Vicodin ES with it to reduce the pain. But that doesn't work all that well.
