Traditional forms of pain relief require frequent administration as the effects of the treatments wear off quickly.
Since these methods also need to be administered regularly and at scheduled times, there may still be long bouts of severe pain one has to endure once the effects of the drugs start wearing off. Prolonged use of analgesics can cause gastric irritation and affect the kidney as well as the heart in the long run.
Transdermal Patches offer a convenient way to release the drugs directly into the bloodstream making it easy and convenient to use. The patch once applied on the skin, releases medication throughout the day to manage chronic pain.
