Price Affordability

I have been getting my 5% Lidocaine patches, made by Qualitest; from Rite Aid Pharmacy for years. The other day I received my new supply of patches they were made by MYLAN. These patches are absolute junk!

They are made of this thin plastic film, which with my RA is so aggravating to separate/ As they are cut squares of plastic, there is no edge to grab, you need to try to separate them, which is hard to say the lest. Once you do separate, then you need to stick it to your body. If they had made it as a BAND-AID, they would stick great. But no, they curl, peal back at the corners and eventually fall off! I have to tape them on my body, sad. The plastic is so thin, it must have cost almost a penny a sheet. As I get thirty pads a month, a thirty day supply costs $375.00. I'm sure the Qualitest patches must have cost a nickel!

What greed, and the funny things is, it's still not enough for them!

Reason of review: Bad quality.

I didn't like: Quality of product, User friendliness.

Had an Experience with Mylan?

I agree with the entire statement. The patch also is not effective if you do get it on and I really don't believe there is medication on it.

I have had a very similar situation with this Mylan product and it has become a quality of life issue. My insurance company had also supplied qualitest patches before and I wish they had never switched.

These patches are terrible.I agree the plastic does not stick, curls up and falls off.

The next time I need them I will make sure I get the Lidoderm product.I also purchased them at Rite aid.

I just purchased my Mylan 5% lidocaine patches and am very, very disappointed.After 4 hour of wearing under a tight fitting undergarment to make sure the patches stay in place, to my dissapointment, they did not.

Brought at Rite Aid at a high cost and now experience have taught me that I have wasted must need money.

Will call and cancel remaining order.Cost too much for product to not preform.
