I would assume there has to be, though I don't know how easy it is to get or if it's even available on the black market.

There was a thread a WAYS back before the initial PH ban where creating a TD patch to enhance absorption was discussed by Chemo and some other knowledgeble folks - the consensus was that it definitely would increase the efficacy of the adminstered product but that the PITA (pain in the ass) factor would negate any positive benefits.
This might sound odd, but has anyone tried using a patch for our kind of transdermals? I wonder if it would work better. It should keep it from drying quickly, which may increase absorpton. Duct tape and plastic wrap anybody? (only half joking)
Honestly, with a good TD carrier you really can approach 50% absorption rates - the homebrew recipe on this site is cheap and extremly effective.
Check out this wiki article, talks about TD patch development:
Transdermaly cycles are definitely effective and worth doing - the biggest issue, like CDB mentioned, are the loss of product and you dont know *exactly* how much is getting absorbed.
There's been a lot of threads on obtaining maximum absorption, but some of the best ideas are mentioned here:
- Clean, well scrubbed hairless area with thinner skin
- Bigger surface areas = more product absorbed
- Lower product concentration in carrier = more product absorbed
- 2nd application of an 'empty' carrier matrix a short time after the initial application has dried can make a huge difference, as it helps to 'drag' the dried product on your skin through.

Very interesting the 2nd application of a carrier, good idea, I may try this.
I've done this with DMSO, but DMSO, has its limitations because of its harshness.

The only thing I don't like about them. Otherwise safety and convenience wise they're awesome. But God, to know at least half the test you paid for is dust in the wind...
