Has anyone used these? My provider wants to send me these instead of the brands I know to be good, such as Qualitest, Actavis, Endo & Watson. They sent Mylan once and these are useless because of the stiff backing.

Yes, I have them they are worthless, I am reporting these patches to my insurance company, they are not a generic equivalent to the "Brand" patch, which has 700 mg of Lidocaine, Mylan has 140 mg. They fall off after an hour, they are very hard to open. My insurance company sent them years ago I sent them back. Actavis is a great generic and meets what I think are minimum requirements 700 mg of Lidocaine, easy to apply and they stick.

Par is the generic for endo I am going to try. Actavis is junk too. Call the company and ask for a refund to be sent to your pharmacy.

Hello BeeGeeDee,

I have heard mostly negative reactions to this brand but as with all medicine products it's really going to be a coin toss with it working for you. Everyone is slightly different and it just may turn out that this brand is best for you, you won't get a good idea until you've experienced it for yourself. My suggestion is to give it a try as your provider has suggested and then make the determination as to what the next step should be. If it doesn't work let them know, if it works then don't fix what isn't broken.

Good luck and let us know if it works or not for you.
