Experience

I stopped the patch after 3 days of taking it as I had a bad reaction to it. I started feeling unwell but not awful on the first day. The second day I had chest pain, painful back, hot flushes, dizziness, feeling like I was going to be sick and faint. 111 told me to go to hospital straight away that evening. I told them I thought I was reacting to the patch and they didn’t listen to me at all and told me to keep it on. The next morning I had tingling all over my body, going numb, hands stiff and couldn’t relax, very sick, skin going grey and lips turning blue and I couldn’t get up. I ended up having an ambulance sent to me on code red. I didn’t listen to the hospital and took the patch off that morning before the ambulance arrived, was sick multiple times, got all the hormones out of my body and was COMPLETELY FINE after that!! Please listen to your body! This was just how I reacted to the patch, I have read so many great reviews. You know your body better than anyone, if you feel you need to take it off then do!!
