Hello, this is Dr. E. Greetings from New York! I'm so glad you posted your question for me to answer, and I aim to provide you with accurate info.

Yes, it is ok to use Hypafix Tape to cover the patch. A lot of patients find this tape most effective in keeping the patch in place.

I started with my first patch long does it take to start working? Thank you for your help, now I won't be worring while trying to sleep:)
You should start to feel some relief within 8 hours of applying your first patch. It will begin to work well after 12 hours...

Best of luck to you!
