Transdermal patches for pain??

Posted by kelus on 4/21/99 at 00:00 (006228)

I have heard of Transdermal patches for estrogen and weight loss.
Is there one for pain? This would be great to leave on our heels.
(has anyone tried anything like this if there happens to actually be a patch like this?)
I found some patches at Walmart, but I don't think that they are 'transdermal'.....they were just menthol, and didn't help.

Kelus, there are transdermal patches for pain, they have been around for quite some time now. You need to have your Dr. write a prescription for them though, because they contain narcotics. Haven't seen any which can be bought over the counter. Marie
