i was using them resulting in some pain relief last summer but after a few months everywhere the patch touched my skin burnt to the point of scarring my chest . a consultant on the pain management team prescribed me the same drug but on a patch that had to be changed after 4 days instead of 7. i started using this patch on monday evening , spent all day yesterday curled up in bed with the electric blanket on in agony when i wasnt in a trance like sleep and this morning the patch site was burning and itching so bad i had to remove it . have been told if the patch doesnt work i can have morphine tablets that i place under my tongue , my real concern is how do the medics know if im allergic to the plaster or the morphine ? Help !
