Conditions and medications

Can the patches be used alongside other medications?

Our patches are absorbed through the skin and do not interfere with any orally taken medications. However, if you have any doubts please do contact your GP.

If you are using other patches (such as HRT, Nicotine patches etc) please apply them in a different place to the area that you have applied TBD patches to avoid any potential irritation.

I am using medicinal creams and gels, can I use the patches?

Our patches are not suitable to be applied on top of any medicinal or cosmetic gels or creams. If you would like to use the patch, please apply it on clean dry skin that is free of any creams or gels.

If you are using other patches (such as HRT, Nicotine patches etc) please apply them in a different place to the area that you have applied TBD patches to avoid any potential irritation. Please consult your doctor if you have any doubts.

Are the patches safe for sensitive or allergy prone skin?

All of the ingredients in our patches are of premium quality and cosmetic grade with a low risk of allergic response. The patches have undergone dermatological testing and are classified as kind and safe for skin. However, if your skin is prone to irritation, for the first use we recommend keeping the patches on for up to 2 hours to see how your skin reacts to them. If you experience irritation, discontinue using the patches. Those with known allergies to plasters should not use the patches.

Are the joint patches suitable for fibromyalgia?

Our active joint patches are best suited for localised muscle and joint pain. We have received some positive feedback when it comes to general all over body pain such as fibromyalgia but our patches may not be as effective with these kinds of conditions. If you suffer from fibromyalgia and want to try the patches, we recommend you chose the Trial Pack.

Are the patches suitable for people with diabetes?

The glucose (dextrose) quantities of 13mg in our active joint and muscle patches are far below those ingested in food and will not even register in the finger prick test. However, if you have any concerns, please consult your GP.

Are they safe to use with Vitamin D supplements?

Our patches are not known to interfere with orally taken supplements as they provide Vitamin D through the skin similar to the way that we get vitamin d from the sun, which is known to self-regulate. If you are taking a high dosage of oral supplementation, we would recommend getting your vitamin D levels tested regularly (after a month of patch usage) and consulting your doctor if you have any concerns.

Are the joint patches suitable for anxiety?

Our patches are suitable for targeted relief, the patented combination of vitamin D and dextrose works to regenerate nerves and soothe discomfort. Therefore, unfortunately, they cannot be used for treating anxiety and depression. There is strong research showing the benefits of vitamin D on mental health and mood, but our patches are not intended for this use. If you are looking for support, we have a community Facebook group “Together for Better Days”, which is a safe space for people to find advice, support and tips on any health-related topic.
