Re: hot weather affecting duration of fent patch

I haven't used the patch in several years. I had to stop because I had a severe allergic reaction to the "sticky substance" after using them for a year. I've had over 30 surgeries and my skin reacts weird stuff after a while. I can't touch latex or many tapes or bandages anymore, they all blister my skin.

It's really hard to say how much the heat is affecting your patch....if it's making the patch release the meds too quickly, as with some folks, you'll know pretty quick because you won't get the same amount of pain coverage as you normally do...but to try and put a percentage on it is pretty impossible.
