Ive had 2 ops which have solved radial pain but back pain is crippling. I useparacetamol, pregsbslin, amytrptyline, lyaric, risperidone and 1 or 2 other pills. But the other day my chemist after 5 yesrs on these patches said no hot baths. I have hot hot bsth once maybe twice a day to ease my back pain. Oyher than profusely sweating and occasional left arm feeling heavy and sore I'm ok.
The product insert clearly states "NO Baths". A bath, especially if the patch gets immersed or otherwise heated releases almost all of the contents of the patch plus the residual amount which would otherwise be thrown out with the patch in less than 24 hours. Any heating is bad. It is an overdose risk situation.
PS. 200 microgram patches? The biggest we get here (AU) is 100 microgram/hour then 75, 50, 25, 12.5. I can find no information about a 200 microgram patches here.
