... and stay in place all you have to do is call the company at 18007969526 and request the ASKINADERM overlay for your patch. You will need your prescription lot number which is located on the bottom of your box and on the individual packages. To re - order all you do is call 18008480461 ext 4330. I hope this helps others. I was having a really difficult time getting my patches to stick so I looked up and contacted the company and they helped me out. Please call them if you need the askinaderm overlays for your patches
Thank you for this. I can use it to help others with a similar issue. Was never a problem for me but many do have the issue.
Hi, can you also let others know if they are on the Duragesic brand fentanyl patches made by Janssen they also provide a 800 phone number on the box to call. You will need your information off the box to give them. They will send you the Bioclusive covers for free. I couldn't have worn mine without them. I also hopes this might help someone.
For mines to stick good... I would clean my skin with alcohol where im sticking the patch at and than let it dry.than I'll apply the patch on my skin. Now if it doesn't won't to stick after that, than ill put a targa on it.the stuff they put over your I.v. to hold it steal. But u would have to ask the nurse to give u a couple of them.
I, too, thank you for this information. I was on the patch for 4 years but having a hard time getting them to stick and therefore wasn't getting full effects. I truly want to get back in the patch and now have an answer to getting full benefit.
According to Mylan, the Bioclusive patch cover will work as well. I have been using NexCare Tegaderms with the PAR gel patches and that worked really well, but my pharmacy (KMart) switched to AVEVA by Apotex silicon matrix patches. They stay on well. And I think they work better without the Tegaderm covers, but they aren't nearly as effective as the PAR gel patches. The pain relief (or lack thereof) is not nearly as good and steady as the PAR gels.
Do we have any input from other users of either the Mylan (which I may try) or the AVEVA patches?
You can get those at your pharmacy that's where I get them there called tagaderm
Oh my gosh I have had soooo many of my patches fall off from sweat, and the pharmacists begin to look at you sideways. I knew I was not crazy and this helps me feel so much better now that I know about this. THANK YOU, you may have just saved me a huge huge ongoing hassle. I will speak to my dr about this tomorrow as she has been so patient and understanding. This has truly been the best news in months.
This information is still valid. BUT if your trying to get through the phone expect it to take forever to 1. Get a real person even using the ext. listed! I tried for two days before reaching a live body!!
So expect a wait from hell! They don’t call back when you leave a message either!
So it’s a valid program but maybe it gets easier after the first order and it is free!
My doctor recommended a patch that allows air to pass through it so the fentanyl patch still works properly. The name of the patch he recommended was Tegaderm which I used for a long time. I finally found out that Walgreen's has their own version which is labeled Transparent Waterproof Dressings. I had my Dr. check them and he said they were fine. They cost Several dollars less per box then the others and also come in several sizes to completely cover the fentanyl patch. I've used these for several years and have not lost a patch with it.
