Work as well as other brands?
They do not work. Look up amount of fent. in brand name I believe 17.6 in 100mcg patch but in malin. their is about 11.? generic meds by law only are required to have certain % of active ingredient some put correct amount some out of country or cheap as can be made companies put bare minimum and in my and only my opinion this company makes the mistake of putting less than that in other words they do not work from very personal experiences good luck.
Just cut off in KY Dr's scared to death of dea and I was a 20 year pain patient and now can't leave house their has to be help for pain patients and stiffer penalties for pleasure seekers.
I have been using the Mallinckrodt brand for several years now after my smalltown pharmacy could not get the Mylan brand anymore. I am very petite and liked the Mylan brand because they are much smaller, and the larger Duragesic-type patch was a problem getting it to lay flush on my arm (I'm so thin that it almost wrapped halfway around it and would buckle, stick to itself, etc.)! However, I never noticed a difference when I went to Mallinckrodt (my pharmacist found it's just a bit bigger than the Mylan which is why I switched to it). Of course, the Mylan and Mallinckrodt brands are different than the Duragesic-style. You can't visibly see the liquid in them. Someone in one of the groups said it's because the fentanyl is in the glue itself in these patches, although I don't know how true that is? May I ask if you change your patches every 72 hours or 48 hours? If you've noticed any withdrawal symptoms on the third day, it's possible you may need to change them every 48 hours instead.
I saw that you wrote your post back on December 2nd, so I hope your problem has been solved by now. But I thought I'd comment on this just in case others may be having similar problems.
