What do you mean by off-label? Like generic? I'll give that a shot. How did your surgery go? How are you doing? Was it worth it?

Re: Wonder about putting fentanyl patch on for a while and then taking it back off. . .

Hi,

Heat increases the rate at which the medication is released. If you can keep cool, you should be fine. Try to stay in the A/C with it on!
