Hello, Rochelle! How are you?

There is a chance that you're allergic to something in the adhesive that you use, or the components of the patch itself, such as latex, if it contains any.

Have you consulted your prescriber? The safest thing to do would be to have it checked out to be sure, because many allergies can continue to get worse, with repeated exposure.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I have the same problem, and found out it is the adhesive in the overlay. If I don't use the overlay the patch can and has fallen off in less then a day. It the overlay can also cause pain. If the patch works, be careful not to let the company know, I told the company, and they refused to send me anymore. I also want to advise EVERYONE TO BE CAREFUL, I called a company headquarters to find out a place like WalMart has several thousand suppliers, and a greater chance to get fake medicine!!!!
