that can cause death, and your friend will likely die of an OD before anyone notices the he/she is even in danger. The whole purpose of a patch is to slowly and evenly dispense fentanyl thru the skin for a long lasting effect, to do what he/she is doing releases too much medication almost immediately, he/she will likely not be around much longer, I hate to say that, but that is extremely dangerous and deadly.

Patti's right. One of my patients was addicted to the fentanyl patch and after being released from our hospital, someone turned him on to sucking the fentanyl out of the patch. His girlfriend told us that he died just 2 days after being released from us of a fentanyl overdose. You really need to get your friend some help before it's too late.
