Rachie, I just did a search on these and there isn't a lot about them. One site did say that they really aren't helpful for fibromyalgia. I think it's a type of opiod. But that site said that Tramadol did help some with fibro. I tried it and it didn't help me...only put me to sleep.
Sometimes you can be allergic to the adhesive but that should only affect the skin under the adhesive...not the large area you are talking about. You really don't want to add another medication to conteract side affects of the first medication. That isn't healthy at all.
Anyway, welcome! We are glad you have found us and joined in. Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibromyalgia and you will learn a lot there. Also, back posts have a world of information in them. You might see other things that you could try that wouldn't cause these problems you are having. The pain is enough!
I'm happy that you are here and I hope to hear more from you soon.
