I have chondrosis (degenerative knee condition), these patches really helped me with the excruciating pain in my knee but paying for them monthly is far too much money on a family of six. Shame on you Simon Harris

Chronic pain is not a one size fits all disease. Patients need access to the treatment that works for them!

I suffer from chronic pain in my back from deg. Disc I got a chance to try these patches, and they are better than painkillers that affect your liver, but no way I could afford them if they were removed from getting them from the Dr, as am on med card,. Because of my back I cannot do what I used to do. These are needed for all those people in the same position as me. Pearl.

I use Versatis patches, they reduce the amount of oral medication needed and help manage chronic cervical neuropathic pain. I am requesting that the government return these patches to the DPS scheme and Medical card scheme to ensure I and others in the same situation can avail of this treatment which is the least toxic, but very effective treatment for neuropathic pain
