My Ortho Dr. gave me a sample of Flector patch and I attached it. While reading the warnings regarding any Cardiovascular history, I pulled it off after 15 min. Pain relief is great, but chance of Death from wearing this, not so good. Why do some Drs. give these out without warning patients?
Actually he won't tell you those things, but when you get it filled you get a paper with it, and you are supposed to read it. Also your pharmacist should be explaining the med. There are many healthcare specialist in different roles to assist the dr because he can't possible know or do it all.
Have you called your ortho doctor as well as your cardiologist? This should be your first action. It could well be that the side effects won't be a problem for you. But you can't know unless you investigate. Please give them, especially your cardiologist, a call ASAP. Let us know how it goes.
