Advice & Tips: Since I already have trouble with urinary function, this medication has added to the difficulty in voiding or gives the sensation of urgency. I have found that it is difficult to keep the patch to stay on especially in the hot and humid weather. I have to tape it on.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Deep leg pain: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 75 mcg Daily
Advice & Tips: i have side effects to most narcotics. i did not like watching the clock and worrying about when it was time for my meds. caring pills around. with the patch i change it every 3 days. i alternate on my arms but get to itchy to place it the other recommended spots. change it and forget it, then take Vicodin once or twice a day for breakthrough. i gets alittle hot and sweaty but i use a trans dermal bandage/see though. a box is about $10s for month and really keeps them stuck i have bad reactions to most pain meds like percocet and Oxycontin and i did not like having to watch the clock and carry meds around with me so i could take it ever 4 hours. i really like being able to put on patch on my arm (alternating) every three days and forget about it. only taking Vicodin for breakthrough. i am very pleased with it

  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Advice & Tips: This patch has really taken the edge off of my pain, although it hasnt completely taken it away. Make sure you stay on top of changing your patch as advised. And remember that each time you move up a dose you feel high, but just remember that your body will get used to it and you will go back to being you. I function just fine everyday.
Side effects: Adhesive reaction, Constipation
