Yes they are over the counter. I bought them @ my local grocery store. While I was shopping I remembered reading about them....so checked out the healthcare section, under pain relievers...and there they were!
$1.99 for 4 patches.
I wore 2 last night and took 1 Tylenol P.M. and was raring to go this morning...felt so good! Hadn't felt that good for SO long. Not cured mind you, but 'bendable'
Tonight I have another 1 on and just took my Tylenol. Hoping for another restful sleep, especially since tomorrow is the beginning of my work week.
I could use a good jump start...
BTW...I stopped taking the Nortripyline. EGADS! that stuff was awful...I think it induced 'brain fog'....talk about groggy! Some of these drugs for pain are terrible...
I hope you find them! AND I hope they work as well for you as they do for me!
