"... Patients who are using the fentanyl transdermal patch and their caregiversmust be fully informedabout safe methods for storage and disposal of used, unneeded or defective fentanyl transdermal patches. Fentanyl transdermal patches should be stored in a safe place and kept out of the reach of children. Safely dispose of used, unneeded or defective fentanyl transdermal patchesby folding the adhesive sides of the patch together (until it adheres to itself) and flushing it down the toilet. "
