I see there have been no responses. Perhaps you could ask your pharmacist or call the doctor?

Re: ? about fentanyl patch

I would definitely call the doctor to confirm but I believe you can. I have had patches fall off and the doctor said that I should just put another one on as long as you only have one on at a time, you shouldn't get too much medicine. I hope you get your answer and please post what it is so that you might help someone in the future. Also, provide your source of this information (whether it was your doc or pharm)?
