They are sold by prescription only and not very cheap either. One of my neighbors uses them. Look online and read up on it. I can't remember where I priced them. Seemed like they came 30 to a box. But they can be cut and taped on.

Information for the patch can be found at Endo Pharmaceutical.com This is the maker of the patch.

I have been using them for a little while now. I don't use them everyday....just on the harder days. I usually place the patches on bad pain spots and then tape my feet with one strip. They stick very well on their own....but they can feel a little squishy at first...but they do take the edge off.

Just ask your doctor for a prescription
