Thanks girls. I was hoping for more info but it is nice to have what I can get. So far I have reasonable pain relief but I think my doctor will have to adjust the patch dosage. I ruined 1 patch because it didn't stick. You have to be really careful with regular tape because it doesn't breath the way the correct stuff does. I am still a little achy and my head still hurts so I am pretty sure we haven't found my ideal dosage yet. I am not sure if I should give it more time or call the doctor and go in for an adjustment in my dose.
