    Not sure if this is the right place to ask but it has to do with quitting an addiction, so whatever.

    I've tried the patch before and it worked great, until i didn't buy the next step. Well I started on it again but this time I bought the wallgreens brand figuring like everything else, they put their name on another brand's product and sold it for less. (last time i used nicoderm) I used to get the usual itching, slight pain with the nicoderm but now i get that and more with the new one. After I take of the patch the area gets red and puffy, almost like an allergic reaction. Today though, I noticed the area on my arm that I had the patch on last night (took off around 11pm) has a few small water blisters. Anybody know if this is normal? Couldn't find a straight answer anywhere else.

    On a good note I'm on day 4 without even a drag :cool:

    Stop using them.

    FWIW, I found the actual Nicoderm patches were worth the extra $. Fewer skin problems, less itching, and they stay in place better.

    that sounds weird, and i bet i says somewhere in the packaging to stop if that happens.

    good job! Nicorette patches worked for me, been over a year now!

    If I wore the patch when I was sweating a lot or took a shower with it on, my skin would look weird underneath the patch. I don't remember blisters or things like that. Be sure to move the patch around. If it continues to happen, call your doctor.

    Oh and congrats on 4 days.
