Back Problems board


My specialist gave me a couple samples of a pain patch. I keep forgetting to look at the name of it before I come to work, but if you say it I will know what it is called. Anyway, there isn't any instructions with it and just wondered if you can put it on and take other medicines with it? I didn't think to ask him when I was there, just stuck it in the sack and figured it would have instructions. Anyone know about them or had them? I don't want to use it until I know more about it, mmmm might call the pharmacy.
