fantanyl is opoid analgesic. hense more potent than anyother opoids.
please suggest best cleaning method for reducing potential harm of cross contamination.
When you take it off to put on a new one... fold the old one in half with sticky sides touching and safely dispose of. Do not attempt to clean it in any way, shape or form. You could end up puncturing the patch and leaking out any remaining medication. THAT COULD BE HARMFUL IF INGESTED OR FATAL!!!
Properly dispose of each used patch...
