I saw your Q and my pulse quickened, as I'm so allergic to the patch adhesive as well as others here. The patch worked great for my pain, for two days, but my skin looked like a blow torch had been weilded on me!
I hope the manufacturers can come up with something, for non-cancer pain patients that isn't a patch.
I've heard of the lollipops but don't know if they are prescribed for non cancer pain, too. Plus, lollipops must be IR, right?
Thank you for posting this, Pamee, but meeting with the reps is indeed weird!
