Most of the reviews are for the patches and I'm due to start taking the pills any day now. So many are not happy with the patches I'm wondering why that seems to be the Drs. choice rather than the pills. So any reviews for the pills would be nice. Oh yes, for those people saying they can't shower or swim with the patches on, there is a good latex surgical tape you can get at the pharmacy to cover over the patches, I had to use this after puncturing a lung to cover the hole till it healed and it works really well, it won't come off, it's thicker than any bandage.
