Has Anyone Tried ActiPatch?

Has Anyone Tried ActiPatch?

I used the patches for costochondritis my insurance charged me $10.00 for 5 of them and they didn't do too much but numb the surface of my skin. I believe they do have Lidocain in them. I could see using on a trigger point like the neck or inside of knees. The problem with FM is the pain travels everywhere and it would be hard to have that many patches on lol...The upside is they didn't make me sick like the medications have.

Ah. Thank you for your reply. My sister found something on actipatch. Never heard of it either but apparently it's sold by Boots pharmacy in the U.K. Prob avail in other places as well.
May just give it a try but thought I would ask my fibro family first.
I will also look into the fletcher patches.
Thanks again. Xxx

I got the patch on a 7 day trial paid 2.95 I was without back pain for 4 days you can get them from boots 20 pounds should last a month the one I trialed was a loop with a small inferred light keeping it stuck to the skin was tricky will be trying belt soon witch I hope will stay in place better. For the price I think there worth a go.

I agree with agape. I messaged the company about widespread pain and they said I'd have to use more than 1 patch as the pain relief is only within the area of the patch..... Really????? How many to cover the body then?
