My BF's daughter has been using this for the past few months. It seems to work okay. With the added plus that we can check at any time to see if she put it on, as opposed to before w/ pills she would forget or we wouldn't know if she really took them. She did show signs of some of sideeffects the first week, although tolerable ones(ie insomnia, dizzy), they dissipated and are very rarely seen since. And on occasion she gets a little red where she wears it, but its fades after a little while, nothing more than and/or comparable to wearing a band-aid on softer skin area(back hip…butt :) Hope this helps anyone out there wanting some personal input on this med/type of med. Trust me, I hadn't heard of it before either('an add patch?!?') but, so far, so good.

A patch is preferable in cases where substance abuse is an issue, as a patch cannot easily be tampered with.
