Told it was a "marketing decision." Used daily Gelnique gel in the past, but abandoned once Oxytrol 4-day patch became OTC. Unlike Gelnique, this patch costs 1/2 as much for the same duration, doesn't have to dry (with 3 blobs of gel, it takes forever), doesn't have to be applied daily, and doesn't have to be applied at the same time of day. There's no "con" to the patch except it competed with Gelnique, whose parent company bought out the OTC division that made the patch! If Gelnique is that hard up, why not make it in a 4-day patch? Can I get it from Canada?
