I started the patch 3 days ago and all was good, the first night I put on the inside of my arm, the second night I put it on my chest above my breast and both of those placements were fine. Tonight I put it on the back of my shoulder and now my shoulder feels very sore, it was also itchy when I first put it on as well but the itching went away after about 5 mins, however my shoulder still feels sore. It kind of feels like a dead arm. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? should I put a new patch on in a different placement?

I found the best place to be the upper arms, alternating daily.

Thank you so much Hope! I think that's the only location I haven't put it on yet so I will try that tonight :)

Hi and welcome!I've tried lots of different places lol. Patches seem to be better for me up high on my arm just below shoulder. They still itch like crazy and 1st, I'm on lowest dose and have 3 months quit tomorrow.
I also put them on my upper thigh but they get caught in clothes etc.
Keep trying and you'll work it out. Congratulations on your 3 days!
