I used the Flector Patch in my 5th week of severe shingles for 3 days/nites. I had tried the Lidoderm patch which didn't help. Tried the Flector & it helped for @ 4 hours...not 12, then began an even worse burning sensation than what I was already having! Would have to take it off and wash off the area, then use cool compresses in the area! Will not use them again.

My insurance doesn't pay for the flector patch either but get on their website and they will send you a $30 coupon. You must present this to the pharmasist with the prescription. I also was able to get a 2nd $30 coupon for my refill.
