Does Patchaid Really Work?



Recommended Posts

I have the PatchAid Multivitamin patch and a couple others. I was wondering if anyone has used these and only these *(no pills) and have had normal bloodwork. I want to know if they are effective enough. I hate my chewable Vitamin.

I've heard mixed reviews about vitamin patches - they seem to work for some people, but not for others. I never tried them because I figured I'd be one of the latter. I HAVE thought about getting some to take on trips, though, since they'd be a lot more convenient - and if they ended up not working for me, a few days without Vitamins wouldn't be the end of the world.

My team is against them. I don't have personal experience as they tell us not to use them.

They say that they only have about a 20% success rate for proper absorption and people end up deficient.

I would talk to your team and follow their guidance. Maybe they will allow you to try them but check your Vitamin levels sooner or more regularly than their normal spacing.

my doctor and Nutritionist said not to use them. I also hate the chewables, so I use the ProCare Health 1 a day pill with Iron

My team said to stay away from the gummies and Patches. The patches were discouraged due to malabsorption and the gummies too, and they had extra sugar. I suggest you check with your team. My dietitian suggested Centrum with Iron or prenatal Vitamins. The nurse pointed out that Flintstones with iron have the same vitamins at less cost. I put the Flintstones under my tongue and don’t even taste them. Same thing for the B vitamins

Been using Patches for many years. I switched from PatchMD to PatchAid a few years ago after PatchMD changed they formulation (nerfed the Calcium content). Luckily patches work very well for me (verified by yearly blood tests).

Thank you, at least you've had success. I will use them and check my blood work in a couple months. Thanks!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
