After Celebrex became dangerous to my kidneys, having lost 40 percent of my output function, my pain physician gave me Flector patches, which treats both my fibromyalgia and my arthritis discomforts well. I have malformations in my neck and spine, from the arthritis.
However, my insurance will no longer cover the medication, saying it is only for "acute pains due to sprains, etc."
Except it works, allowing me to stand for the six hours a day that I have to each day for work. Without it I'm incapacitated, unable to think for the severity of the pain.
I truly believe it is a great drug; and, as I have hyper-sensitivities to many allergens and didn't have any problems with this drug, nor did it negatively affect my kidneys, I hope you have a similar positive experience.
And, I pray that the Insurance Gods will allow me to get my needed medications again.
