Cutting fentanyl patches in half and wearing them?

Absolutely NOT! You risk too much medicine going in to your system too fast. Never cut, puncture these patches. If they are too strong, contact your doctor and discuss the dose.

Please be safe,

Don't do that, this is powerful medication and it can leak out and cause very severe problems. Ask for a lower dose patch, or take it off briefly ( if you are running low on them, and afraid you will run out) and restick it using paper tape. A nurse had to cut some used ones up and got the gel on her finger and severely reacted. Do not cut this in half.
