? Rash: If you were allergic to the adhesive used in this product you may have developed a rash that is itchy. If that is the case and an over the counter cortisone ointment does not help then i would see a dermatologist. If the skin is just try without a rash use a moisturizer that is a cream not a lotion. ...Read more

Can I still breast feed while using salonpas patches?

Can I still breast feed while using salonpas patches?

Not Recommended: Not much is absorbed from Salonpas patches. Minimal amount of Salicylate is absorbed from the skin and theoretically can cause Reye's syndrome. It is rare and I have not seen one. However, FDA does not recommend its use in pregnancy or nursing. If you have already used it, do not worry. Just be safe and do not use it again. ...Read more

How long should I wait to breastfeed after using salonpas patches? I had about 15 on my legs

How long should I wait to breastfeed after using salonpas patches?  I had about 15 on my legs

Difficult to answer: This is really difficult to answer because you are overusing the patches. The manufacturer clearly says to use only 3-4 per day maximum. If you are using 15 patches, then you are not only getting too much salicylate in your body to breastfeed, but risk salicylate poisoning for yourself, which can be fatal. There is NO WAY to know how much of that medication you adsorbed into your system.... ...Read more

I believe you have a musculoskeletal pain, please get your shoulder checked by your PMD. Feel better soon. ...Read more

What is the ?: If you were having angina - cardiac chest pain after activity - you should have been calling 911, getting ems or going to a hospital, and not sitting at your computer typing. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) salonpas and xanax are not the right treatment for an impending myocardial infarction. See your doctor about your chest pain and work on reducing your risks - smoking, overweight, high fat/cholesterol. Take aspirin. ...Read more
