I had used the Nicoderm patches for the first 6 weeks and decided to try these because they were alot cheaper--big mistake! The first one left a bright red,raised, itching, burning patch on my skin that i had to treat with first aid cream. It is still there after a week. I had minimal to no irritaton from the other patches. I do not consider my skin especially sensitive either. I would not recommend.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Don't believe the ads that say these don't stick. These patches stay on until you take them off. I have even moved them and restuck them somewhere else, and they still stuck. They don't give me the Nicotine jitters like the more other more expensive brands do.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
