From everything I've read....I've done a ton of research as a patch wearer myself....The Mylan stick fairly well, but don't work well. The whole patch is a mass and the glue and med is all mixed together. Conversely, the gel filled have outer barrier around the edges of glue. Duragesic brand (Janssen) stick great....Janssen makes the Sandoz generic, but they use less quality glue and as a result, they don't stick as well.

I've heard the Watson stick better than Sandoz and they work better than Sandoz also.

My husband was using the mylan patch but I had to refill at wallgreens and they had watson. Because of the gel filled spot he began to break out from it. Only where the gel was not the glue. So we had to go back to mylan which I think work better. I also have to cover them to keep them on. We use covers we get from the hospital each month he goes for treatment. They are a clear cover used to cover ports or IV's.

What about the Duragesic brand? Can you find them? Watson is another good brand with very positive feedback.
