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!!!! Secondly, they only work for minor sprains and aches, which is not what I have and my dr. is well aware. My dr. is a pain management dr. and he and I talked about Lidoderm patches and How I ha ...

    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!
