Re: Applying Watson Fentanyl 75 mcg. Patch???
The type of patch you have is commonly known as a gel resivour (sp?). DO NOT puncture or tear that layer that was left behind. It can lead to a rapid release of the fentanyl causing overdose and or death.
The layer that was left behind is the membrane that controls the release of the medicine. The harder plastic that you took off was the protective covering over that membrane to keep the air off of it and the adhesive protected.
I agree with Outtapain, definately go to the pharmacist and ask for help. There is no shame, make sure that you are doing it right for your own sake.
