Has anyone tried these?

Info from site:

The dosage of one patch (1000 mcg) per week is based upon the dosage of a weekly B12 shot.
You may apply more than one patch per week as there is no upper limit on B12. A month supply contains 4 patches.($24.95 per box)
One patch is approximately the size of a dime.
CD dx @ 13 (1987)
Prednisone 15mg every other day
Imuran 150mg day
Pain Meds

I'd be very leary on something like this. If this was in fact true, I'm sure doctors all over the U.S. would be prescribing these for their patients instead of giving them shots.

Breast Cancer at 36. Diagnosed in 2000. Bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction.
Total colectomy in September 2007 for colonic inertia.
Son diagnosed with Crohn's and UC at 17 (now 20). Taking Asacol and 6MP with Prednisone and Rowasa added during flareups.
Husband HLA B27 postive with ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis.

That is one expensive way to try to get your B12!!!! A heck of a lot cheaper to get the script from the doc and give your own shots w/a short, tiny needle. Sublinqual B12 is also probably one heck of a lot cheaper!
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
