I got into a car accident three days ago and have been using these patches. I have been so incredibly tired and have had a hard time getting anything done. Not to mention I have been totally scatter brained. I am wondering if it is just because my body is recovering from the accident, or if it is the patch. Anyone else have this problem?
It is difficult to determine if your symptoms are due to the accident. It is unlikely that Flector would cause the symptoms you describe.
However, if you feel it is from the Flector patches, please contact your doctor as soon as possible and inform him/her of your concerns.

I started using Flector the other night... I used two patches throughout the evening. The next day I felt so fatigued and worn out I barely made it through the day. I slept later that day from one in the afternoon to 7p.m. Then even the next day was fatigued Also had a redness/rash where I had placed the patch. On the plus side my osteoarthritic pain in that area disappeared. I do not know if I want to go thru this tiredness again... but the pain relief was nice.
