I have arthritis, bursitus, and fibromayalsia. Found that the patches have worked really well for me. I am however really dissapointed with the cash pay price. Prescription for 60 patches is $425 here in Florida. But, how do you put a price on pain relief that is non-narcotic? Narcotic pain meds only lead to more pain meds and more pain. Take it from one who has been there and has recovered from 5 ... Show Full Comment

I have long-term, major back issues and I've had multiple surgeries/fusions for my lower back.

I am really on the fence with these patches. First off, it looks like a LOT of people are in the same boat as I am- my insurance didn't cover them and a 15-day supply (30 patches) cost almost $200!!!!
