Been taking the one that has gel in it( forgot brand) don't like the gel. It doesn't last 72 hours at best last maybe 48. It's huge and uncomfortable to wear. Just switched to a regular patch brand name Alvogen. Really would like some information on the brand ,on sticking power and if it may or may not last 72 hours. Only thing I do know about this brand is it has 5.32 mgs total medicine. Which is pretty good compared to other brands.
I'm glad you asked this question. I just got a box of Alvagon today. I will let you know how they work for me. Are they working for you?
I have started recently. It is 75 dosage and it is not lasting. For the 72 hours. I used to gel one and taped it on as sweating. I like the other much better
Long time 75 patch user. I often have sticky problems, and Mylan was the tops for me. Unfortunately they're no longer available. This month the pharmacy gave me Alvogen for the first time, and so far they're working superbly. No sticky problems even with the temp going over 90 around here. The drug release has been spot on as well. After first application, I didn't experience any lag absorbing. Had been patch free for 90 minutes while soaking in the tub, and didn't have any hints of quick onset withdrawal before reapplication.
Overall I'm very satisfied with these new-to-me patches. I hope all of you can find similar results. Feel better folks :)
My pharmacy recently advised they can't order me the Mylan brand any longer. Alvogen available, I'm trying to find out if the Alvogen brand is on a plastic backing? I don't care for the foil backed patches.
