I switch every 48 hrs. My pain doc agrees they're ineffective after 48 hrs but everyone reacts differently. Max is 72 hrs but my doc changed my script to switch every 48. By day 3, I had no relief. But if you're new to them, 72 may work. Regards
I have a hard time keeping mine on . They are suppose to last 72 hours but mine fall off after 2 days after a shower or hot tub. So if you feel extra pain check you patch. That has worked wellfor me and write it on your calender. Hope that helps.
