I decided on Monday evening to stop using the 21mg 24hour patches.
Talked it through with my daughter and told her that I cant put up with this cramp any longer. Smokey Nurse says the cramp isn't caused by the patches, but how come the cramp came really, really bad on about day 3 of the patches then?
So, I just ripped it off and that was Monday and now its Wednesday and I'm fine. I thought, the worse that can happen is I feel really grumpy and then I can just stick a patch back on again.
I suppose I should have discussed it with Smokey Nurse, but she was adamant that the cramp and the patches were not connected but funnily enough, I didn't get it quite so badly last night hmmmm. Time will tell. Anyone else just stopped patches mid-way though the course and if so, why did you do so? Look forward to hearing from you.
