Re: Fentanyl patch tips
To make my patch stick better i do the following things.....(i wear the sandoz brand 75mg)
1. Before i put my patch on i was the area with warm water only.
2. When i put the patch on i press firmly for about a minute.
3. I also wear it on my upper arm.
4. When i shower i try not to get it wet, i have a shower where i can hold
the nozzle and spray my body and head.
5. If i need to i also put Press and Seal by the makers of Aluminum foil
over the patch and that keeps the water off it.
6. If the sides start to lift i put clear bangage tape on all four sides of patch
and this rarely happens.
Thats all i can think of for now! I hope this helps some.
