Discussions that mention duragesic

Pain Management board


Brian has given you some great advice. Since you flushed it, what's done is done. I would still call your pharmacy and ask to speak to the pharmacist just to let them know so they can pool information in case someone else had a similar experience. I would also let your Doc know.

In the Mylan brand, the glue, med, & by products are all mixed together in one mass....Thus, what you've experienced is unusual. I'd keep my eye out on this box of patches to make sure they work correctly. If you suspect something, retain them so you can send them back to the company for analysis.

As Brian said, ask your pharmacy to order the Sandoz for you if possible. Watson is also a good brand to try. Both are gel filled products (like the Duragesic brand product) and much different than the Mylan.
