I have recently been Rx'd these meds. They are a very potent narcotic pain medication.
Stupidly, I waited until I actually had some pain before I put one on, and now I'm wondering how long the patches take to kick in. The FDA's website says 12-18 hours, and that's just unpalatable to me.
Does anyone out there have any experience with these, and if so, are there any ways I can hasten onset? I am out of my regular medications, and anything OTC will be bullied around by what I'm dealing with.
