I just started my 4th week on the patches and have had a very good response so far. This week however I am having increased pain and even felt some withdrawal symptoms. I don't know if is common to get an inactive patch or if it has to do with where I placed it on my arm.
I don't understand the logic of where you have to place the patch. The fentanyl patch does not require such limited areas of placement. I find in hard to place the patch in a spot that is not in the way of my bra or visible in spring and summer clothes. The first two patches I placed on my side right below my bra strap and I felt they worked better than the ones I have placed on my upper arm. I would love to hear any advice or hear other peoples experiences.
