    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.

    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.
