#fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia patients suffer acute pain, fatigue with a number of other symptoms. Around 20% of the world population suffer from this disease and women are the most affected.

If you are diagnosed with this disease, then you can go for an aggressive approach by taking medicines like milnacipran, duloxetine, and Pregabalin.

Why does the Fibromyalgia Pain Patch work?
Patients usually prefer the Transdermal patches to cure Fibromyalgia. These pain patches work differently than the usual medications. Instead of consuming them orally, Fibromyalgia patch can be applied to the skin. Being in direct contact with the skin, the medicine starts to penetrate your skin slowly and gradually, and finally enters your bloodstream. This further provides immediate and long relief from those chronic pains.
How does the Fibromyalgia Pain Patch work?
There are a variety of Transdermal medications that are available today in the market. People can easily identify them with the name “Tropical’s”. These medications are thought applied orally on different areas of skin but are not proven to be as effective.
Our human skin has seven layers and creams or gels or ointments do not penetrate the skin deeply. As a result, the effect of the medicine present in these creams takes some time to heal. On the other hand, fibromyalgia pain patch sticks on the skin and immediately starts releasing the medicine. The medicine further penetrates below the seven layers of the skin and enters the bloodstream which brings immediate relief from pains or discomforts. Oral consumption of medications is also known to be effective. But they start their work once they reach the stomach, which can take time.
How long to use the Fibromyalgia Pain Patch?
People who are suffering from this disease are still sceptical about using these patches because these patches are mostly made from cannabis, which is also known as marijuana. Patients usually think that consuming marijuana in any form is dangerous for the body. But science has come a long way in term of using “cannabis” medically. Thus, applying these patches is easier and safer today. Depending on the stage of Fibromyalgia and body consumption, the medicine in the patch lasts from 8 – 12hrs.
