After another week of hell my GP prescribed these patches. Starting at 5mg and then working up by 5mg each week if necessary. I'm also taking venlafaxine, clonazepam, naproxen and cocodamol. I'm on day 3 and starting to feel some relief. Has anyone had any experience of these patches for neuropathic pain? The idea is to get to a dose were I don't need the naproxen or cocodamol.
