Fentanyl - Does the patch work if it comes off and I put it back on or move it to a different place?

... on my body? One was pinching my skin so I had to peel it off and put it back on, is it still going to work? I have a inch and a half cut on my chest from this pinchy patch. Trying it on my back now.
I'm on day ten on the 25mcg/hr patches with no relief in site. I wonder if the 50mcg would even work for me. I hope my doctor is going to let me go back to oxycodone, they were working wonders and the pain relief starts in 20 minutes.

Fentanyl has to be started slowly, it will probably be increased. The gel part of the patch has to adhere to your skin. You can use bioclusive to cover it and hopefully it will hold it tight enough to your skin, but I know it will help keep it on. You should not move one once its on because of the need for it to adhere.
