Having suffered severe nerve pain for many months I attended a specialist pain clinic where I saw a fantastic doctor who recommended patches along with another tablet.
When I went to GP (Whitevale Medical Centre Glasgow) to get prescription I was told I couldn't have the patches as I didn't have shingles. Whilst this product is only licensed for shingles, there are many studies to show that it is very effective for other nerve pain also.
