I'm not even sure if i am getting any relief from these patches which i have used a couple of times but not repeatedly. Wanted to know if there is a built up effect to the pain relief if the patches are used daily (12hrs on 12hrs off) as opposed to occasionally when pain is worse. I'm using them in the lumbar area and off to the right towards the hip which is the worse area of pain.
Do not think there is a build up effect but using the patches routinely can help. I have been using 2 patches on my lower back for years. I also have Fibro. When I do not use them for a night or 2 I do notice the difference. Try using them routinely for a couple weeks. Then do not use them for a couple nights. and see if it makes a difference. I have tried other forms of patches but find this works the best for me. Nothing is 100% but I am happy with any relief.
