Deborah K. - Isn’t Bleep a wonderful solution? :-)

Yes, I love using Bleep!

Here's the tape I just ordered.  It got great reviews.

RE: Lip balm with mouth taping?
Thanks Deborah K!

That tape is $48.34 Canadian from amazon here. Plus 13% tax...I'm shocked. That's 3 rolls.....so it's about $20 Cdn a roll.
Thanks for the suggestion....My 3M micropore hurt my lips taking it off this morning....

I'm really happy you suggested it. I'll look hard for a better price.

Dave L - the 3M Nexcare for Sensitive Skin is a lot more expensive than their regular white tape. One roll lasts me about 6 weeks.

Deborah K - please keep us posted how that new tape works for you. It is less expensive that the one I’m currently using.

WOW!  It cost me $7.00.  That's a ridiculous difference!  I can also get a five-yard roll for just $10.00 but decided to go cheap in case I hate taping.

I'll check and see if I can buy it through ama_on dot com.  I truly appreciate your recommendation. I'll spend time looking to see if I can get it for the right price.

YipeekiOH I'm sorry I didn't respond to your comment.

Thanks for telling me the Micropore was horrible.

I'll look and see if I can find#M Nexcare for Sensitive Skin. 

(I used to buy tape in the 3M Company Store in London Ontario. It was awful! The would sell what should have been thrown away! They used to make tape for private label.  It was the same as 3M tape but cheaper retail cost. Looking at it you couldn't tell it was 3M.)

I may try Shopper's Drug Mart private label and see how their sensitive skin tape feels....

Deborah K - smart move buying the $7 roll. This way you aren’t stuck with a bunch of tape.

Dave L - I’m thinking that a store brand might be cheaper. I bought my first roll at Walgreen’s when I got my Covid booster & flu shot and the store brand was not in stock and was a couple of bucks cheaper.

RE: Lip balm with mouth taping?
Thank you!
Store brands are cheaper. I'll look for the silicone tape first....
(my old tape is the Nex...gentle tape. It's not fun to take off.)

Last night I reviewed my recorded pressure during treatment. I was surprised how high it was on two occasions. 19. I was hoping to change my settings. I didn't tape. I used my pad under my chin. Worked well until I woke up at 5:00 this morning....took the pad off and my tretment went to heck in a handbasket when I finally slept. So I taped 4 nights this last week. and my flow chart looks better than it ever has.

Dave L - my events went up and the flow chart looked wonky when I used the neck roll. With tape they went down and the flow charts looked good.
