I suggest you speak to your doctor as something doesn't seem right.

I have never used patches so I am not sure how you are meant to come down from them, or if you have to space them out further apart, sorry.

Hi Dadappleton24

I am so genuinely sorry to read this my friend, and I agree completely with bluebell99 and please talk to your doctor about what is happening? It oculd be a kind of withdrawal or something? Please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you
