... change my patch every 48 hours, which I call "patch days". These 'patch days" are accompanied by severe sweating, constipation, lethargy.. the list goes on. After reading many of the comments here it sounds like I'm going through withdrawal symptoms. After putting on a new patch, usually within an hour I'm back to normal, so to speak. Has anyone else had issues like this? It seems to me every other day is a wasted day of life as all I can do is lie around trying to feel better. I don't know which is the lesser of two evils... getting off the patch completely or trying to get the dosage upped. My thoughts are to get weaned off and live with the pain. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
