>>>Having burned myself a couple of times with a transderm nitro patch, I
now
keep the patch on until I am ready to put the next patch on.  That way I
never apply it over an old spot.  My cardio says that the patches lose
effectiveness after about 12 hours so she has deemed it safe for me to do.
YMMV>>>

Oh, but I said *recently* not right away. It was probably a few days apart -
but I'm pretty sensitive and couldn't handle it. YMMVT (Your Mileage May
Vary, Too)   Maybe I should draw ballpoint rings around them before removing
and watch for the fading lines to avoid those spots too soon? LOL
