Which Fentanyl patch manufacturer is best?
I've recently been placed on the Fentanyl Patch (25 mcg/hr). I was just bumped up to one of these patches plus another 12 mcg/hr patch. First I went to a pharmacy that dispensed the Watson Labs kind and now I just got the Mylan type from a different pharmacy (I changed pharmacies only because they had a $1.00 per gallon of gas coupon if you get a new script filled with them). Anyway, does anyone have experience with the types of patches made by different manufacturers? What I'm really interested in is people's skin reactions to different types, the effectiveness and how long they stay on. From my limited experience with Watson, they irritated my skin and after 12 hours (and one shower) I was already applying lots of waterproof tape to keep the darn thing on.
Any feedback on this? Thanks so much.
