Different doctors give different instructions on how they want you to use them. MY last PM Rx'ed them: On no more than 12 - 18 hours. Off a minimum of 6 hours. Use no more than 4 at any given time. I always had to tape them down on the edges or they would start to roll up and the next you know they would be in a big wad. They are very expensive and I felt they offered very minor relief for the type of pain that I have. The are used often with patients that have shingle pain.
