    Put my first patch on and 48 hours later took it off real fast. This medicine made my blood pressure go throw the roof. It was so high I thought I might just have a stroke.

    With 3 patches made me very sick, nausea, dizziness, when standing or lying down dry mouth (expected) went to ER. Removed one patch. Felt better went home and slept. Next day experienced same feeling as the day before removed one more patch felt better, now experiencing stomach upsets, some weakness, and dizziness when exerting self. Lying down or sitting helped.

    I have used this for two weeks now, and I'm not sure I'm going to continue. I have experienced extreme tiredness and very dry mouth. I have not seen any dramatic change in my BP. I have also had significant weight gain since I started using this and it has only been 2 weeks! The patch is very easy to use but the cover did cause a rash and annoying itching.
