Re: Fentanyl patch tips

To keep Brand Name Duragesic and/or Sandoz Generic Fentanyl Patches in place, here is my ritual:

1. When I place a new patch on my upper arm, I press my hand firmly over the patch for about a minute (as Nu2patch does).

2. Then, I use Johnson & Johnson tape--either the cloth type (blue dispenser) or the paper type (green dispenser). I use four strips on each patch to cover each side of the patch.

3. This patch sticks best on me if I place them on my upper arms. I have not had success by placing them on my back or chest.

4. Finally, do your best to avoid having the shower pour directly onto your patch for any length of time.
