Just thought I would share my experience with these meds (patches). Began taking 5mgs a few weeks ago, made no difference to my chronic back pain (sacroilities, S1 joint pain, L3/4/5/6 herniated discs) so GP changed to 10mg, made some difference by approx 50% and was able to walk without being in too much pain,but am coming off them now due to the unwanted side effects. I suffered nausea, especially in the morning and evening, sleeplessness, very weird dreams, dizzy and sick when sitting in the sun for more than 5 mins, irritability, mood swings etc, crying for no apparent reason and more. My family noticed the big change in me. I have always been an outgoing person who laughed a lot, the laughter stopped, moodiness set in. A really desperate situation so spoke to my GP and am coming off them slowly now. Need to get the real me back again. Would rather have chronic pain that is dibilitating than a loss of 'self'. Never again,
