I take numerous pain medications for fibromyalgia, arthritis, and bursitis. I didn't want anymore cortisone shots for the bursitis in the hips, but the pain was interfering with my sleep, despite all my meds. The Flector patch worked great so I tried it for a strain on my lower back, and it worked significantly better than the over the counter patches. I only needed it one time. Then I tried it for fibromyalgia pain, especially in the neck and shoulder area when I've overdone the computer, and I've been very impressed. I don't want to take anymore pain meds, and the patches have helped so much for the pain that occasionally hits hard enough to put me in bed.

I was prescribed the patch due to a failed back surgery. I have been incapacitated for some time but this patch has been wonderful. I have been able to resume most of my daily activities.

I have disabling lower back pain that is chronic in nature. I have undergone diagnostic studies over the past two years and have been place on Percocet for multilevel degenerative disc disease in the lower thoracic and upper lumbar spine. The Percocet does not control the pain as much as I would like. I found the Flector patches reduce the pain entirely along with the Percocet. I only use at night on my left hip for twelve hours. I have not had any side effects and the patch stays in place as long as i keep it on the flat surface.

I have low back pain, possibility of nerve damage. I immediately started having digestive issues upon useage, and it did not slacken the pain at all. I have acid reflux, so this product should never have been prescribed.... Doctors need more training, more consulting b4 just throwing scripts at us.

My sister used the Flector patch, and within a few days she suffered a tremendous loss of hearing in both ears. This loss of hearing is now permanent. She used the Flector patch five months ago. I would never risk using it.

I have used every type of RX med for chronic oseoarthritis in my knee. I am going to need knee replacement but am trying to delay it for a while. The Flector patch has been a miracle. My only complaint is some skin irritation but I can deal with that. It isn't like I have no pain but it has made my pain manageable.

This is pretty magic. I've had horrible pain after an LP and other issues. They're figuring it out, but in the mean time I couldn't get the pain under control, and I didn't want to take hardcore prescriptions that make me nauseous and high. For days I could hardly move. Less than an hour after I put on the patch, I could walk a block. It still hurts, but it's absolutely nothing compared to before. This is a miracle.

Flector worked every time as an antinflamatory and pain reliever on my knee due to a tear on the median meniscus.
