I received different Generic Patches this time. They are pretty big, 2" x 2" about. The sticky side, that sticks to your skin is bright silver (?) It looks like Aluminum Foil in a way. Anyone have this Brand??? How well does it work? It doesnt seem very sticky...
Hi! I started on the Fentanyl patch Fri. Aug. 14th. I also received the generic brand since my injury is work related and Workers Compensation requires generic if avail over brand name. I think I have the same patch as you based on the description. I have not felt any relief as far as pain goes, it's also kept me up all nite long and into today (Sat. Aug. 15th.) I also had a problem with the adhesive on the patch. It didn't seem to stick very well. I had to use tape around the edges to keep it in place-which fell off in the shower. Last nite I got so frustrated with the whole thing that I took it off and threw it away! I'll put a new one back on shortly since I've been told it takes anywhere from 8 to 36 hours to work on some people. I do know this... pain and sleep deprived is not a good feeling!
