Pain patches

Can anyone tell me where I can buy some tegaderm film bandages, to help keep my pain patch on and dry?

Re: Pain patches

hi peanut,
cute name. welcome to the boards. all i can think of is to use your search engine to find it online or amazon. they seem to have a bit of everything there. look for hospital supplies i would think. some pharmacies carry infusion supplies so they would have them. call around if you have not already exhausted that avenue. a bit of packing tape works if it's just for a shower.
peace,
bluelakelady

Re: Pain patches

I haven't heard of that before, but I usually use orthopedic tape to keep the patches on.

Re: Pain patches

Ok thanks, I just started the pain patch on Monday night weds it fell off in the shower, so I put a new one on, so I'm still uncomfortable but I have statex for breakthrough, how long does it take to start to take effect.

Re: Pain patches

I got a big box on ebay. Sorry I can't be more specific, it's been a long time. you definitely want the big box, it's a rip off to get them at the drug store.
