My take on the Flector patch. ..I was prescribed the patch for constant back pain, pain in the hands and leg pain all traced to osteo arthritis. WOW, the patch worked great! Almost instant relief! That is, for about two days. I started developing a headache (I never get headaches) and since I'm on 5 blood pressure meds, found elevated BP. Should not have been high enough to cause a headache at 150/90 but there it was and now it's still there, although last night I did not replace the patch before bed and woke up with the headache just about gone. Finally, something that gets rid of this horrible constant pain and now I can't use it. Oh, by the way the darn things DO roll and come loose even when I cut it in half. No one will prescribe ANY narcotic pain relievers any more (it's been years since I was prescibed any) which of course will work wonders, because they are all afraid of the DEA. Thank the government for screwing it up again.
