Is the best pain relief achieved with the patch pretty soon after removal or does it improve over the first week?
My experience has been after applying the patch, peak pain relief is achieved in about 2 to 4 hours. Depending on the strength, it's usually changed every 48 to 72 hours. Normally a medication is prscribed along with the patch for breakthrough pain. Usually needed towards the end of the patches time limit. If you are not getting the relief as expected, please contact your doctor asap. best wishes, chris
