Using the patch has made my craving fewer and farther between. My biggest complaint is that I cann't sleep more than 4 to 5 hours at a time.

Comment:
I've been using the patch for about 2.5 weeks and it definitely helped with my urges, but now I'm getting moodier, irritable and having trouble sleeping (I've had the vivid dreams from day one).
