Iron infusion

Hi guys hope you are all coping well in your own ways for those who are the important source of advice and help on this site. I was having some issues with side effects from my medication. I am on pregablin 25mgs lunchtime, 50mgs 6pm, then 100mgs at night, along with the nupro patch. The consultant had discussed an iron infusion in the past, so I am booked for my infusion in July. Have other people come across the patches just falling of, l am careful were I put the patches, and move sites regularly, anybody got any advice. As for infusion will keep you informed after I have had it. Cheers shaft1952

  • Try some tape, you can get some from the chemist, to stick over the patch, altho you have to make sure its complete stuck on (the patch that is) as even lifts at the sides and you wont get the full dose. Some people do have a problem keeping the patch to stay on, maybe you have oily skin..? A alcohol rub on the area might help.
