I'm going to be on the patch soon and I'm worried it'll make me super drowsy and feel high at all times. At least with certain pills, I can lie down after I take them and in an hour or two I'm fine and can go about my day. I'm a student. This would be awful.
Leslie21 Just like the pills these patches could cause you to be drowsy or feeling high more so when you first start I did not notice it myself because the doctor also starts you out on the low to mid range so the less side effects. Many benefits with this one so give it a try. Have a good Sunday hope this is of some help.
Leslie21 Make sure when you start these patches listen to the doctor or pharmacist how to use these like cleaning the skin and alternate places each time and make sure you keep the edges down etc..Best of luck.
