When using medicated pain relief patches, you want the most lasting relief possible with every use.

how long does it take for a pain relief patch to work before it needs to be reapplied?

The duration of relief depends on the specific patch and ingredients. Some over-the-counter patches containing lidocaine or menthol may last 6-8 hours. Prescription lidocaine patches designed for chronic nerve pain can last up to 12 hours. Patches for temporary muscle and joint pain may work for 3-4 hours.

Proper placement also affects duration. Place the patch directly on the painful area or along the path of the affected nerve. For example, a knee pain patch should be placed on your knees, while a sciatica patch should be placed on your lower back. Swirl the spots each time to allow for complete absorption.

Staying properly hydrated helps your body absorb active ingredients. Avoid using the patch immediately after showering or bathing when your skin is damp. Make sure the area is clean and dry for maximum adhesion.

When used correctly and as directed, most pain relief patches provide significant relief for 6-12 hours.
