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.

Comment:
very strong medication. I was diagnosed with failed back surgery syndrome & degenerative disk disorder. I have had some side effects, but they are generaly mild and the benefits far outweigh them. I am concerned about the wrongful death lawsuits and needless to say I will be following the developments in the litigation carefully.

This is the only medication that I have been able to take to help treat my fibromyalgia and allow me to continue working. I only work and sleep, but at least I feel useful now.
